Interlibrary Loan

IEEE allows Licensees and Authorized Users to deliver a reasonable number of copies of Articles (including through use of Ariel or a substantially similar interlibrary loan transmission software) to fulfill requests from non-commercial, academic libraries located within the same country as Licensee; provided, however, that such practice:

  1. complies with Section 108 of the U.S. Copyright Act and the guidelines developed by the National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works (CONTU Guidelines); and
  2. does not result in systematic reproduction of the Licensed Products, any journal or issue of a journal, any Article, or any portion of the foregoing.

Currently, interlibrary loan (ILL) is only available in the Academic License Agreement.
