Go to the Harvard University Library Interlibrary Loan site, click on the log in button and enter your Harvard key to access the system.

If you have never used Interlibrary loan before to borrow a book or request an article, you may have to register for access and then wait for an email confirmation (usually takes 24 hours).  If you have already registered, you should see the following home page. Click on the red ILL Requests link o open a menu with borrowing options.

 

Select Request Article/ Chapter to request access to an article that is not included in the Harvard Library collection (either in print or online). Select Request Loan to request a book from another library. You can also try requesting CDs, DVD, microfiche and other non-print formats through Interlibrary Loan.

Fill out the applicable ILL form and click on the grey Submit Request button at the bottom of the screen. Most article requests will be scanned and you will receive an email once they are available for download. You can also click on the Review Request screen and click on the Download Electronically Received Articles option.

*Please note that there is a time limit for downloading articles so make sure to download your article promptly or you may have to request it through Interlibrary loan again.
