Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery (IDD): IDD Services Update

A Guide to all IDD Services

Update on IDD Services and Operations

Throughout the 2021-2022 academic year, the USC Libraries’ Inter-library Loan and Document Delivery (IDD) services adapted quickly to keep our community connected to library resources through home delivery, expanded digitization capacity, and other means.

As of January 3rd, 2022:

  • On-campus check-out of print and other physical materials from USC's collection will resume at all open library locations with circulating collections.
  • Home delivery of USC Libraries’ print collections will continue for students enrolled in online programs and faculty who teach in those programs.
  • Home delivery of USC-owned materials and inter-library loan items for all other library users concluded on August 2nd, 2021.
  • Students and faculty on campus or within Los Angeles County will not be eligible for home delivery unless fully enrolled or teaching in an online program. Some exceptions can be made but not guaranteed.
  • All USC students, faculty, and staff will continue to have access to Scan & Deliver services for eligible book chapters, articles, and other materials.
  • Inter-library Loan of physical materials has restarted from partner lending libraries and institutions depending of the accessibility of their collections.
  • Requests for physical materials borrowed via inter-library loan circulate from Leavey Library for those not eligible for Home Delivery services.
