Interlibrary Loan

The University of Idaho Law Library is committed to getting materials needed by patrons. If a material is not owned by the Law Library, it can be obtained from other University libraries, as part of the Summit service, or through interlibrary loan. Read more about these services and how to place requests below.

Other University of Idaho Libraries:

All materials owned by any of the University of Idaho Libraries, including the main campus library, are available for use by all students, faculty, staff, and members of the public. You may either visit the library or, if you already have a VandalCard or library card, you may request books for pick up at the Moscow or Boise law library.  To see rules governing the loan period and fines associated with UI-owned items, visit our policies page.

  • Go to the library’s catalog
  • Click “Sign in” in the top right corner of the window, select “University of Idaho Students, Faculty, and Staff”, and then use your UI credentials to log in to your library account
  • Search for the book and click on the appropriate result
  • Under “Get It”, click “Request UI owned item”
  • Fill out the “Pickup/delivery location”, selecting “UI Law Library” to pick up the material at the Moscow law library and selecting “Idaho State Law Library” to pick up the material at the Boise law library
  • Hit Request

You will be notified when the book is ready for pick up. You may check the status of the request by signing in to your library account in the catalog, clicking on your name in the top right corner of the window, and selecting “My Requests”.

Summit:

Summit is a free borrowing service available to University of Idaho students, faculty, and staff organized via the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a consortia of 39 academic libraries in the Northwest. Requests typically take 3-5 days to arrive in Moscow, and its speed and free cost make Summit preferable to interlibrary loan. Due to logistical difficulties, it is recommended that students in Boise not use this service and instead follow the procedures for Interlibrary Loan. This will ensure quick and efficient delivery of the material. To see rules governing the loan period and fines associated with Summit materials, visit our policies page.

  • Go to the library’s catalog
  • Click “Sign in” in the top right corner of the window, select “University of Idaho Students, Faculty, and Staff”, and then use your UI credentials to log in to your library account
  • Search for the book and click on "Check Request Options" in the appropriate result
  • Under “Get It”, click “Place Summit request”
  • Fill out the appropriate information (including volume number if relevant), making sure to set the "Pickup/delivery location" to "UI Law Library" to pick up the material at the Moscow law library
  • Hit Request

You will be notified when the book is ready for pick up. You may check the status of the request by signing in to your library account in the catalog, clicking on your name in the top right corner of the window, and selecting “My Requests”.

Interlibrary Loan:

If the UI Libraries do not own a material and the Summit service is not available for your requested material (e.g. the requested material is an article or not owned by any participating library), interlibrary loan is available for UI patrons. This service is typically free to UI students, faculty, staff, and Boise attorneys. In special cases, students and Boise attorneys may be charged for a request, but will be contacted about payment before the request is filled. Members of the public and attorneys not local to Boise are not eligible for interlibrary loan, and should contact their public library for requests.

Requests typically take 7-14 days to arrive for books and 1-2 days for articles, and patrons will be notified via email once the item arrives. Loan periods are set by the lending library, and many libraries allow renewals if requested before the due date. Fines associated with these materials are the same as for UI-owned items; visit our policies page for more details.

  • First, be sure that the material is not owned by a UI or Summit library by searching for the material in the library catalog.
  • Locate a complete citation of the desired material using WorldCat, an extensive library catalog
  • Click on the appropriate result, then click “Request Item through Interlibrary Loan”, which will take you to the Law Library ILLiad site.
  • Enter your username and password. If you are a first time user, click on “First Time Users” under the password field, select “Click here if you are a law student, law staff or law faculty member” and fill out the required fields
  • WorldCat will autofill many of the required fields. Fill out the remaining fields with as specific, detailed, and complete a citation as you can.
  • Click Submit request

You will be notified when your material is ready for pick up via email. You may check the status of the request by signing into your ILLiad account and selecting “View Outstanding Requests”.

  • Locate a complete citation of the desired material using WorldCat, an extensive library catalog
  • Email the citation of the desired material to Kris Quigley

You will be notified when you material is ready for pick up via email or phone call. You may check the status of your request by emailing Kris Quigley.
