Interlibrary Loan

The D'Angelo Law Library offers many different ways to find the sources you need.

BorrowDirect & UBorrow

The University of Chicago Library is a member of two consortia--BorrowDirect and UBorrow--that allow UChicago users to search for and request books directly from the major research libraries of the Ivy League and Big 10 universities, MIT, Duke, Johns Hopkins, and the Center for Research Libraries, with combined collections of more than 100 million volumes. The loan period for both services is 12 weeks, and the books should arrive within 4-5 days. To request items that are currently unavailable from the University of Chicago Library or are not owned by the Library, search BorrowDirect for the Ivy League universities plus MIT or UBorrow for the Big 10 universities. 

Interlibrary Loan 

Main Interlibrary Loan Page (ILLiad)

If a book is not available via BorrowDirect or UBorrow, you should search WorldCat to see what libraries worldwide own the title. Once you locate the book in WorldCat, you may request it by clicking on the FindIt! button and filling out an online interlibrary loan request form. You may also go to the main Interlibrary Loan page to make requests for books or articles, to renew a book that you are still using, or to check the status of a request.

Lending to Law Firm Libraries

Chicago Association of Law Libraries (CALL) member libraries may contact the Interlibrary Loan Department at the Joseph Regenstein Library to request items held at the D'Angelo Law Library. 

Telephone: 773-702-8706

OCLC requests directed to either CGU or KEH (our CALL Union List symbol) will be fulfilled by Interlibrary Loan.

The D'Angelo Law Library occasionally handles interlibrary loan requests from Chicago Association of Law Libraries (CALL) member institutions directly. Inquiries may be directed to or to D'Angelo Law Reference at (773) 702-9631. The requester will be notified within two business days as to whether the item will be lent. The loan period is 30 days.

Lending requests will not be granted to individuals. Interlibrary loan services are only available to other libraries.
