The ILL staff will attempt to acquire any information resource, with certain exceptions, not immediately available in the Baylor Libraries needed by Baylor clients, regardless of format or location of the owning library or research collection around the world. Items owned by Baylor but that are checked out to another client or missing from the shelves MAY be requested via ILL. Be sure to indicate that the local copy is not available in your request.

Please note that the following items typically are not available for loan:​

  • Journals and Newspapers
  • Rare or Fragile Documents
  • Genealogy or Reference Books
  • Audiovisual Materials

We will NOT attempt to acquire the following:

  • Textbooks - should be purchased through the Baylor Bookstore or another vendor
  • Popular DVDs and Videos - should be readily available for rental or purchase through a video store or online vendor
