Borrow from Other Libraries
What is ILL? Interlibrary loan is the process by which a library requests material from, or supplies to, another library. It is a service offered by a library to its primary users for materials not held by the library. When the University Libraries do not have the book or periodical article that you need in its collection, the Libraries may obtain it from another library through interlibrary loan, which averages two weeks or less in turnaround time. The borrower is notified by e-mail when the item is received.
Rider University Libraries provide Interlibrary Loans for current Rider students, faculty and staff. Items are usually received within two weeks of the date of the request.

NOTICE: WARNING CONCERNING COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these 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 judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
Check the Library's holdings for print copies or online copies available in databases by going to "Find Journals" on the Rider Libraries' homepage, entering the name of journal, magazine, newspaper in the query box, then click "Search." If the University Libraries do not have the item, please fill out the ILL request form. The form below requires the ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) for each requested article or the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) for each requested book, if available. The requestor is responsible to supply. Either number should be visible on the citation in the source.
