Interlibrary services for other libraries
Who can ask for ILL and DD services – Other Libraries
Italian, foreign, public, and academic libraries, together with those belonging to cultural or private institutions can ask for items owned by Insubria University libraries.
Insubria University libraries lend their materials in compliance with Italian Copyright Law and free of charge to those libraries which share their holdings providing free ILL and DD services.
Otherwise, a payment may be asked to cover service costs.
