Klinck Memorial Library Policies: Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Requests

Please Note:

Due to AI technology, all CUC students submitting a generated citation list of more than 5 articles to be located by CUC librarians through email will be required to have a one-on-one consultation with a librarian before any of the articles are filled. We understand that AI technology is incredibly helpful, but at this time, references/citations generated by AI technology are fake, waste everyone's time, and does not simplify the research process. To look for research owned by CUC, please visit the CUC library webpage.


Interlibrary loan service is available to Concordia University Chicago students, faculty, and staff. The Klinck Memorial Library is subject to the interlibrary loan service policies of the lending institutions. Requesting patrons assume full responsibility for borrowed items.

For copy requests, the Klinck Memorial Library must comply with the copyright law (Title 17, United States Code). If the Klinck Memorial Library does not subscribe to the journal and the publication date is within the last five years, the library can only request five copies per journal title in a year. The library can request one article per issue per patron. If the journal publication date is more than five years, there is no limit on the number of copies the library can request.


Interlibrary loan service is provided at no charge for ILLINET and LVIS members. Other libraries are charged a $10.00 fee per request. Klinck Memorial Library does not fill international requests, except from LVIS members. The following types of materials cannot be borrowed:

  • AV materials
  • Curriculum materials
  • Reference materials
  • Rare materials
  • Microforms

The length of the interlibrary loan is a minimum of 28 days. Material may be renewed 3 times. All borrowed materials are subject to recall. The minimum replacement cost per damaged or lost item is $100.00.

For copy requests, the requesting library must comply with copyright law (Title 17, United States Code). Klinck Memorial Library will provide up to 30 pages per bibliographic citation from non-electronic resources.
