HealthILL -- Inter-library Loans request list for health libraries


About HealthILL
English (USA)

This mailing list is provided by the HEE Library and Knowledge Service Leads for NHS LKS in England and should only be used for last resort requests after all other potential free sources have been exhausted.

It is the responsibility of participating libraries to ensure they do not breach terms and conditions of copyright or publishers licenses when requesting or supplying copies via the list.

See below for terms and conditions of use.


1. Please request one item per email. This will speed up supply and give more accurate statistics.

2. In the subject line please put Request, title of the journal and the year e.g. REQUEST Annals of Internal Medicine 2011 as this will help people quickly identify whether they can help you.

3. If you resubmit your request please put FINAL Request, title of the journal and the year e.g. FINAL REQUEST Annals of Internal Medicine 2011

4. If your request is satisfied then please save your colleagues time by sending another email to the list to let them know.

The standard format is the same subject line as the initial request with satisfied at the beginning e.g. SATISFIED REQUEST - Annals of Internal Medicine 2011

This stops other libraries from looking for a request you've already satisfied and is useful for the statistics we are keeping of the list.

5. Postings should contain full library contact details including contact email address and library network name and network code

Restrictions and Legal Concerns
