InterLibrary Loan Online Request Form for Magazine/Journal Articles

Students sitting in the Locke Library reading books

To request Interlibrary Loan (ILL) materials through Don C. Locke Library you must:

  • have a valid A-B Tech photo ID
  • be a current curriculum student, staff, or faculty member at A-B Tech
  • have an active library account with a record in good standing


Please note that:

  • Most requests can be filled in approximately two weeks but some may take longer.
  • The maximum number of interlibrary loan articles a patron can request at any one time is three.
  • COPYRIGHT law (Title 17, United States Code) specifies that the photocopy or reproduction of copyrighted material is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research”. If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopied reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement. Don C. Locke Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying request, if, in its judgment, fulfilling the request would involve violation of copyright law.
  • COPYRIGHT law (CONTU Guidelines) includes a “Rule of Five” which limits interlibrary loan requests to five articles per title per year for articles published within the last five years. Within that five year limit, the library may only request one article from each issue of a given journal title. Requests beyond this limit must be declined.
  • If you have any questions please contact Sue Donato at or at 398.7572. For questions regarding access services for off-site requests, please contact Peggy Higgins at or at 398.7302.
