Return to Law Library
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) borrowing service is available to current Georgetown University Law Center faculty, students and staff. Interlibrary Loan locates and physically borrows materials not owned or available through the Georgetown University Libraries and obtains copies from periodicals not found in the Law Library's print or electronic collections. For books, please check first the Law Library's GULLiver catalog and main campus' GEORGE catalog for available copies. Through the respective catalogs, you may request a Law Library book whose status is available to be paged for you or have an available main campus book sent to the Law Center as a Direct Borrow. For copies of articles, check first for the periodical or journal title in the Law Library's GULLiver catalog for any print, microform and electronic versions. The E-Journal Finder will also help you locate electronic journal subscriptions at Georgetown. If an ILL request is determined to be available through GULLiver, GEORGE, or E-Journal Finder, the request will be cancelled and returned to the requester.
If you are a registered ILLiad user and want to submit a book request, wait! You do not have to logon to ILLiad first. Go to WorldCat first, search for the title, then click on the "Click here to request via ILL" link on that record. You will then be asked to logon to ILLiad and your request information will be transferred. (You will need your GoCard information to access WorldCat from off-campus).
GU Main Campus users should use Lauinger Library's Interlibrary Loan Service.
