COVID 19 - Get it @ Yale Services

Scan & Deliver and Interlibrary Loan Article/Chapter Scans

The library will continue to process interlibrary loan requests for articles and chapters (items not available from Yale Library) and Scan & Deliver requests (items available in the Yale Library collections). However, turnaround time for these services may be delayed, and the fulfillment of interlibrary loan requests is dependent on our partner libraries. We ask that you prioritize requesting items that are the most urgent for your research, course work, or patient care needs.

BorrowDirect and Physical Interlibrary Loan Services

At this time, BorrowDirect and physical interlibrary loan services are suspended until further notice. Please keep any BorrowDirect or interlibrary loan items you may have in your possession; no need to return those items to campus at this time. However, if you are on campus and are no longer using your BorrowDirect or ILL materials, we encourage you to return them to a library book drop. All fines and fees for overdue items will be waived for your BorrowDirect and interlibrary loan items.

More library updates regarding COVID 19 can be found on the library's COVID-19 homepage.
