Alternatives for Document Delivery
This is a list of alternatives to the Health Sciences Library's Interlibrary Loan service. Some of them are free while others charge various fees.
Many local hospitals have libraries. If you are on the staff at a local hospital, you may wish to contact your hospital librarian. Hospital libraries have access to the same resources as the Health Sciences Library and may offer ILL services at low cost to affiliated hospital staff.
Faculty, staff, and students of other CU campuses or Colorado colleges and universities are encouraged to contact their affiliated campus libraries. In most cases, academic libraries receive funding to subsidize ILL services for affiliated personnel/students.
Many public libraries are funded to provide ILL services that are typically less expensive than those at the Health Sciences Library. Denver residents may request items held at the Health Sciences Library and/or other libraries from the ILL service at Denver Public Library (DPL). Contact DPL at (720) 865-1718 for more information. If you are not a Denver resident, contact your local public library.
Information regarding selected commercial document suppliers follows. You may wish to contact these or other businesses if you require special services that the Health Sciences Library ’s staff is unable to provide. While the Health Sciences Library's staff does not advocate particular commercial document suppliers, we have found these services to be reliable.
