Boley ILL services are available to students, faculty and staff affiliated with the law school. Those affiliated with the College of Arts and Sciences or the Graduate School should contact the Watzek Library. Attorneys may use ILL via Attorney Services for a minimum of $10.
All costs associated with ILL borrowing are covered by the law school. However, please make requests judiciously to ensure that additional charges aren’t required in the future. All patrons are subject to overdue fines and/or replacement charges for late, missing or damaged ILL materials. Attorneys must pay all charges from the lending library.
Summit is a group of nearly 40 academic libraries in the Northwest that have agreed to share books and other materials e.g., audio, DVDs, etc. If an item is not available via Summit, it can be requested using ILL via Worldcat, a catalog containing the records of over 10,000 libraries worldwide. Article requests must be made through ILL.
Summit materials can be requested directly from the Boley catalog by selecting “Find & Request” and then “Request via Summit.” If it’s an article or an item that’s not available via Summit, use this ILL form.
Complete citations are very helpful. Book requests should include the title, author and publication date. Article requests should include title, author, volume and issue number (if available), page number(s) and date. If you do not have a complete citation, please ask a reference librarian for help.
Requests for materials from the main campus library should be made using the “Request” button in our catalog. These items are usually delivered the following business day. You can visit Watzek and check out books and other resources directly.
Students, faculty and staff are welcome to visit any Summit library to borrow materials on-site. Bring your current L&C ID card if you plan to borrow something. Call ahead to make sure the item you need can be checked out. A list of Summit libraries, complete with a map and contact information, can be found here.
