Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Lending

The Vincent C. Immel Law Library will lend materials to other libraries upon request.

Each request must have the address and phone number of the requesting library. We will lend to law firms provided they have an OCLC account and a librarian to process the material.

Lending requests are accepted via:

The Library is unable to process rush requests. A minimum of 2-3 business days should be expected.

As a general rule, the Library does not lend:

  • Periodicals, Serials, or Multi-Volume Sets
  • Looseleafs
  • Reference or Reserve Materials
  • Microforms
  • Media

Books circulate for four weeks. One renewal will be granted if the book has not been requested by another patron.

Borrowing libraries are responsible for the safety of borrowed materials from the time the material leaves the law library until it is returned. If damage or loss occurs, the borrowing library will be billed for the replacement cost. The minimum replacement fee is $120. If an item is lost or damaged, contact the Interlibrary Loan Office at (314) 977-3314.

Payment

Materials are loaned free to MOBIUS, MAALL, MMLA and AJCU members. Otherwise, charges for copies and loans are $15. The preferred method of payment for OCLC users is IFM. All other users will be invoiced monthly. Payment is expected when the invoice is received.
