Interlibrary Loan at the Boley Law Library

If the Law Library or the Watzek Library on the Lewis & Clark College campus does not own the book, periodical or document that you need, Interlibrary Loan is a resource to consider. The Library can often locate and borrow materials through several systems. Please note: L&C Law students and faculty may use this form to make ILL requests. ILL requests made by anyone outside the law school community will be rejected.
