What is Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service that allows Carroll students, faculty, and staff to borrow books or receive pdf copies of articles that are owned by another library.   If the Carroll College Library does not have a book or article that you need in its collections, you can place an ILL request to receive it.
