IDD: Interlibrary Loan & Document Deliver Services

USC Libraries' Integrated Document Delivery (IDD) services obtains books, book chapters, articles, and other research materials through a network of libraries, research centers, and other institutions.  We work with a global network of libraries to share resources and support scholarly research for faculty, staff, and students. IDD offers the following distinct services:

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is USC Libraries' service that obtains books, dissertations, government documents, audio-visual resources, and other physical materials not owned or otherwise unavailable from USC.

Scan & Deliver is USC Libraries' service that provides articles, book chapters, and other documents that are delivered electronically.  This service is available to all students, staff, faculty, and distance users.

Home Delivery is USC Libraries' service that provides books that are delivered to distance faculty and students enrolled in a distance-based program.

Please explore each page on this guide for a breakdown of all our services, policies, and other details.
