Using Lehigh's Libraries

New to Lehigh University's Libraries? Here is a short guide to get you up and researching in no time.

Interlibrary Loan

Sometimes you will discover an article for which Lehigh does not have access to the full text. Or you may want an article that we own in print sent to you via email. Use Interlibrary Loan to request a .PDF of an article that isn't available at Lehigh or a scanned .PDF of a print article that Lehigh owns.

There are two options for interlibrary loan: 


Used to submit requests to borrow books from other academic libraries in the state of Pennsylvania.


Used to submit requests for journal articles, reports, conference papers, and books from other libraries. This is also the service used to request scanned copies of print articles owned by Lehigh University.

To register for ILLiad, please follow the steps in the tutorial linked directly below this section.

A note about ebooks: Due to publisher restrictions, e-books are not available to be borrowed or lent through interlibrary loan.
