Yale University Library offers free book loans to non-profit CT Libraries

In the summer of 2015, the Yale University Library and the Yale Law Library began a pilot program offering free ILL Lending to all non-profit Connecticut libraries to assist during the transition from the reQuest ILL system to the new state union catalog and consortial borrowing/lending platform. The Yale libraries are pleased to announce that effective immediately this free ILL Lending program will now become permanent for loans to all non-profit Connecticut libraries.

Connecticut libraries who use the OCLC WorldShare ILL system will make their requests using OCLC, where any loan requests for Sterling Memorial Library (OCLC symbol: YUS), or the Harvey Cushing/John Hay Whitney Medical Library (OCLC codes YUM and GXR) will be filled for free.

Connecticut libraries who do not use OCLC/WorldShare ILL should use this web form to submit their loan requests:

First-time requesters should email in order to obtain a username and password for the system.

ILL requests will be shipped from Yale via UPS, and can be returned via the Ccar service.  Please use Ccar Route A-124 (New Haven Free Public Library) for all returns.

Please note that normal charges still apply to ILL Lending article requests.

For more information, please see the official announcement on the Yale University Library website:

Best, Tom
