Improved Interlibrary Loan Service

August 16th, 2016 · No Comments

Interlibrary Loan just got better!

You can now keep track of everything you have borrowed in one place!

All materials received from other libraries, regardless of how the requests are submitted, will now appear in your Brandeis library account (“My Account” in OneSearch) along with your Brandeis library materials.


You can renew all your Interlibrary Loan materials from My Account as well! Just click on the ILL Renewals link in My Account, and this will take you directly to the renewals page in your ILL account.

Now everything you have borrowed via Interlibrary Loan will also accrue overdue fines the same way as your Brandeis materials. Of course, you can avoid overdue fines by returning your loans on time! Visit our late fees page to learn more about our overdue and lost book policies.

Want to know more about getting books from other libraries? Check out our Interlibrary Loan self-help guide!
