Interlibrary Loan Services: Photocopying & Microfilming Information
Scope of Services
Provision of photocopy, microfilm, and photographs from books, periodicals,
newspapers, and microfilm and estimates for the cost of such copies.
Form of Requests
All requests for photocopying of materials protected by copyright must carry
clear indication of their compliance with the copyright law (CCL) or copyright
guidelines (CCG). Requests for photocopy or microfilming cannot be taken
over the telephone. The Library requires a written request, submitted either
through RLIN (our LI is CTYG), through OCLC (our symbol is YUS) or typed on an ALA or
IFLA form. ALA/IFLA forms may be transmitted via Ariel (126.96.36.199) and
by fax (203-432-2257). Personal requests for photocopies or microfilm will
be accepted in the form of personal letters or e-mail (email@example.com).
Verification of Requests
Requests must include verification of the bibliographic information provided.
This should be given by citation of a standard printed or online reference
source or an alternative source of citation if the title cannot be found
in a standard source. If no verification is given, the citation will be searched
only with the information provided and only in Yale's public catalog. If
verification has been provided through RLIN or OCLC, give the full
record identification number. Extensive searching for unverified articles,
sections, or information in material held by Yale will not be undertaken.
A $20.00 fee is charged for each photocopy transaction completed for North
American libraries For libraries located outside of North America,
the photocopy fee is $30 USD. A transaction is defined as a filled
request for a single article less than 50 pages. Invoices for payment will
arrive with the article or microfilm. An article will be delivered without
additional cost via Ariel or fax. Please provide an Ariel IP address or fax number with
request. Preferred delivery is via Ariel, then fax, and finally
by mail. A service charge of $25.00 per hour, in addition to the charges
made for the production of the photocopy or microfilm, may be charged for orders
requiring unusual staff effort. In these cases, work will not proceed until
the requesting institution or individual has been notified and has accepted all charges.
Restrictions on Copying
The availability of photocopy,
photographs, or microfilm of specific material is determined by the material's
