You may log in to your NCCU Law Library ILLiad account at any time to make requests, track requests, and access articles you have requested.
First time users, log in using your current NCCU log-in and password, then fill out the form with the required fields marked by an asterisk.
Due Dates: Due dates are determined by the lending library, so there is no standard checkout period for ILL materials.
Renewals: Renewals are granted at the discretion of the lending library. Renewals are usually not granted if the item is overdue, so it is recommended that you submit a renewal request before the item is due.
Recalls: The lending library may recall interlibrary loan materials at their discretion. Recalled materials must be returned to the Law Library as soon as possible.
Returns: Loan materials borrowed through interlibrary loan must be returned to the Law Library.
Overdue items: Materials not returned by the due date or recall date will result in the patron's ILLiad account being blocked, and fines may be assessed.
Electronic Delivery: Most copy requests are delivered as PDF files to your ILLiad account. Be sure to save the PDF file as it will be automatically deleted 30 days after delivery.
Problems: Please contact the Interlibrary Loan department as soon as possible. Do not contact the lending institution directly. We will work with the lender to resolve the problem. Our contact information is on the right side of this page.
What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service the law library operates to give you access to materials, such as books, journal articles, book chapters, videos, and other materials, that are not available in the North Carolina Central University Libraries. NCCU Law Library uses the ILLiad platform to help patrons submit requests faster, track progress easier, and manage their accounts at any time.
After logging into ILLiad and submitting your request, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) staff search for other libraries to loan the desired material. Once your request arrives, you will be automatically notified via email (article copies will be delivered electronically). Students must pickup ILL materials from the Law Library's Circulation Desk. Faculty and staff may request office delivery.
All late fees, fines, and/or damage charges are the sole responsibility of the library patron, and are assessed by the lending library as well as the Law Library.
Who may use Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan at the NCCU Law Library is available to current law students, faculty and staff. Other university patrons should use ILL services from Shepard Library.
We cannot accept ILL requests for course textbooks.
