  Interlibrary Loan

Using Interlibrary Loan (ILL), you can:

  • borrow books and more from other libraries
  • get copies of articles that Emory doesn't own.

You will be notified when your materials arrive. Most articles/book chapters take a day or two, but books take longer because they have to be shipped.

  Borrowing From Other Local Libraries

Borrow materials from other libraries, including local academic libraries!

Emory students, faculty and staff can borrow materials from the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Georgia State by presenting an Emory ID.

Emory students, faculty, and staff can also get a library card for the Fulton County Public Library system. 

Here are some further details about Emory's Interlibrary Use Programs that offer access to materials at local libraries and beyond.
