Interlibrary Loan (or Resource Sharing): New Users

Login to Interlibrary Loan or WorldCat. How to use these services. Policies.


Interlibrary Loan is a service through which you can borrow or obtain materials that are not available at Brandeis from other libraries. We also provide a Document Delivery service - if you discover an article or book chapter that Brandeis has, we can scan and deliver it to you.

These services are intended to serve Brandeis related research, scholarship and work. Brandeis faculty members staff, and currently enrolled students, may use these services.

Please take a few moments to look through this self-help guide before you start. If you have questions or comments please contact us!

Getting Started

The first time you use Interlibrary Loan or Document Delivery you will need to register. This is quick and easy! You will log in using your Brandeis UNet login  and password.

Important Copyright Information

Compliance with Copyright Law

By registering to use interlibrary loan services and submitting requests for materials, users accept responsibility for complying with United States Copyright Law.


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

Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of those specified 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.

This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgement, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
