Rudolph Matas Library uses ILLiad, an automated Interlibrary Loan system. This free Interlibrary Loan service is available to clinicians, faculty, staff, students, and researchers of all Tulane Health Sciences programs on the downtown campus and Tulane National Primate Research Center. Articles are supplied in electronic format (PDF) within several business days. Books may take longer, as they are usually shipped via mail or UPS.
Rudolph Matas Library of the Health Sciences complies with US Federal Copyright Law. US Federal Copyright Guidelines allow academic libraries to borrow five (5) articles published in the last five (5) years per journal title in a calendar year. In addition, only two (2) articles per journal issue published in the last five (5) years can be borrowed per calendar year. Articles requested in excess of these Guidelines will result in copyright and/or royalty fees.
For clinical emergencies submit your request and contact the Matas ILL Office at (504) 988-2413.
Books obtained through Matas Interlibrary Loan must be returned to the Matas Library before the due date.
The Tulane Business and Law Libraries provide services to their academic communities, and Howard-Tilton Memorial Library on the uptown campus provides Interlibrary Loan services for all other academic programs.
