Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service of Hutchins Library available to all Berea College faculty, staff, and students as well as library patrons in the community.
We borrow materials which are not available in Hutchins Library or other Berea College departmental libraries for the educational, research, and general needs of the community.
Hutchins Library ILLiad interlibrary loan service lets you place, track, and keep a history of your requests from a personal online account.
