If you want it, we can get it!

What Is ILL and DD and Who is Eligible to Use It?

Interlibrary Loan (ILL):

  • allows you to request library materials from institutions all over the world. If a book, journal, dissertation, or other item is not available in the Yale Library System the ILL team will attempt to obtain it from a global network of partner libraries. 

Document Delivery (DD):

  • allows you to obtain a PDF of print materials from the Medical Library and most collections at Yale University.

Clinicians, faculty, staff, students and researchers in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health and the Yale New Haven Hospital can use ILL and DD services free of charge. One form does it all!
