Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad): For Users at Other Libraries

Borrowing items or obtaning copies from outside of the UToledo Libraries or OhioLINK.

Borrowing items from the University of Toledo Libraries

If you are not affiliated with the University of Toledo and need to borrow an item from our collection, please contact the interlibrary loan department of your local library to have them request the item for you.

Users with borrowing privileges at other OhioLINK libraries should see the OhioLINK Borrowing tab for information about placing requests for UToledo items through the OhioLINK catalog, or for picking up items in person through the Visiting OhioLINK Patron program.

For information about our rare books, university archives, or manuscript collections, please contact the staff at the Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections.

Interested in a UToledo Thesis or Dissertation?

Print Copies

UToledo Libraries has print circulating copies of most UToledo theses and dissertations written before 2011. Please request the one you are interested in through your own affiliated library's interlibrary loan department. 

Online Versions

All UToledo theses and dissertations written since 2010 are freely accessible in the OhioLINK Electronic Thesis & Dissertation Center (unless the author has requested a temporary delay). Some, but not all published between 2000 and 2009 are also available at the above link. 

Overseas Lending

Unfortunately, we are unable to lend materials overseas. However, dissertations may be available from the UMI (ProQuest) company. This is not an Interlibrary Loan service since UMI is a private company. Please note that they set the price, and currently the cost averages $61.00 (US).  To order a dissertation from this company you can use the Dissertation Express Service at this link:
