This guide explains the process of registering information and using ILLiad interlibrary loan at NJIT to request materials not owned by NJIT libraries.


The NJIT Library offers Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Document Delivery Services (DDS) to current students, faculty, and staff.

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.

NJIT Library's exceptional ILL speed and participation in the OCLC's Express digital delivery program. The Express program enables digital resource sharing among a select group of libraries (600+) using the WorldShare ILL network that have turnaround times for lending digital materials of 18 hours or less.
