Interlibrary loan, like Link+, is essentially libraries borrowing and loaning materials to one another on behalf of their patrons. However these two services differ from one another in three main ways:
- What you can borrow through Link+ is limited to books and media while you may borrow books, media, articles, and more through Interlibrary loan (ILL).
- Once you request items through Link+, you might wait 3-5 business days to receive your request; ILL can take up to 1-2 weeks.
- The Link+ loan period for books (and some media) is 21 days; the loan period for most media is 7 days. ILL loan periods are set by each lending library and may vary from 3 weeks to 3 months.
