Copyright Notice


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of reproductions of copyrighted materials.

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specific conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

NJIT reserves the right to refuse to accept an interlibrary loan request or a document delivery request, in our judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.

The NJIT Library offers Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Document Delivery Services (DDS) to current students, faculty, and staff. Materials not owned by the NJIT can be requested through ILL. Materials available from NJIT print collection can be scanned and electronically delivered through DDS. The turnaround time may be as short as 24-hours for requested articles. Books and some materials may take up to two weeks depending on availability.

  • Check the Journals Finder (Full Text) and the library Online Catalog to see if NJIT library owns it or if an electronic version is available for immediate access.

We will not borrow textbooks. We encourage students to ask their instructors to place textbooks on reserve.

Who May Use Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery Services?

  • Alumni and non-NJIT patrons are not eligible for ILL services at NJIT; however we encourage all public patrons to use their local public library for all interlibrary loan needs.
