*The Law Library provides interlibrary loan services to current Gould faculty, staff, and law students. All non-Gould students and non-Gould faculty and staff may request interlibrary loan materials through the USC Libraries.
Interlibrary loan (“ILL”) is a system with which the library can borrow items from other universities to provide Gould patrons with research materials that USC does not own.
The library can borrow things like books (except textbooks and other course-related materials), journal and newspaper articles, book chapters, dissertations, government documents, and other items.
Delivery time varies depending on the item. It can take from two days for some digital materials to several weeks for physical, rare, or difficult-to-obtain items. Please submit your request as early as possible.
The library incurs costs with every interlibrary loan transaction, but we provide this service to members of Gould for free. Due to budgetary constraints, however, we will not re-borrow the same item, once that item has been returned. Journal staff should plan to use ILL books as soon as possible after they arrive to avoid problems.
We will email you.
This varies depending on the lender's due date; lending periods often range from two to four weeks, but they can be shorter or longer.
