Interlibrary Loan Services: ILL
Interlibrary Loan Services - Changes to the Service
Updated: July 6th, 2020
Due to the changes of lending policies and the reduction of services from our lending partners, all MSHS Libraries will be modifying our ILL services and will only be processing requests for articles that can be delivered to users through a valid email address.
WE WILL NOT PROCESS ANY REQUESTS FOR PHYSICAL BOOKS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Please note that we cannot process requests for e-books.
All ILL books that are currently on loan to our patrons, the due date has been extended until July 31st. You can return your book(s) at any time by dropping the item(s) off in the book drop located in the elevator lobby of ANBG 11.
We thank you for your patience during this time and if you have any questions or need assistance during this time, please send us a message us at ILLemail@example.com.

Need an article or book that's not in the Levy Library collection? Use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and we will request the item you want from another Library.

Interlibrary Loan Services - ILLiad
The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service allows ISMMS students, residents, faculty, and staff and MSHS employees to borrow materials from other libraries when an item is not available at Mount Sinai Health System Libraries.
In order to make an ILL request all users must first register for an ILLiad account. ILLiad also enables you to track the status of your requests, and can provide available articles in PDF format through its Electronic Delivery option. Electronically delivered articles are usually available in 2-3 business days; other requests usually take 7-10 days to fill.
Request Policies and Limits
- Users can submit up to 20 requests at a time.
- Users who are working on large projects or are planning to submit more than 20 requests for a single project, must contact the head of the Interlibrary Loan Services department prior to submitting any requests. Please send an email to ILL-E-Delivery@mssm.edu with your name, status at MSHS or ISMMS, and scope of the project.
- We will process up to 10 requests per user, per day.
- All interlibrary loan items must either be returned or renewed (if allowed) by the due date. Failure to return any item in a timely manner could result in late, lost, and/or processing fees that have been applied by the lending library. Failure to return an item will result in a loss of interlibrary loan privileges.
