Interlibrary Loan

LIMITED ILL SERVICES

A limited number of libraries have begun lending their items through Interlibrary Loan. We are accepting requests to borrow items, which can be shipped to our users via FedEx Ground. We may also be able to provide digitized or electronic versions of some items. Please be as specific as possible with your requests.

 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service available to current GW students registered for credit, and current faculty members and staff.

You can request material not available at any of the GW Libraries or Washington Research Libraries Consortium (WRLC) libraries.

Looking for a textbook?  Please visit GW Campus Stores for rental and purchase options. Interlibrary Loan is not a source for current textbooks. If you are looking for older editions of textbooks, pre-2015, we may be able to borrow those from other libraries.

If you are affiliated with the GW Schools of Public Health, Nursing or Medicine, please request via Himmelfarb Library. If you are affiliated with the GW Law School, please request via Jacob Burns Law Library. All other current GW faculty, students, and staff should log in here:
