Frequently Asked Questions about Interlibrary Loan Fees and Payment

  • Will I be charged?
    • Faculty and staff in the Tufts community are charged $4 per request (e.g., journal article, book, etc.) for items in the Hirsh Health Sciences Library collection or from a library outside of Tufts.  Students are allotted 20 free requests per academic year.
  • Will I get an invoice?
    • That depends.  If there is a charge for your ILLiad request, you will receive an email in the month following the completion of your request with the invoice attached.  Alternatively, if debiting a Tufts deptID, you can setup automatic payments and receive no invoices directly.
  • How do I pay these invoices?
    • Payments can be made by credit card (no Tufts Pcards), or (U.S.) check made out to Tufts Hirsh Health Sciences Library and brought in-person/mailed to:

Document Delivery Department
Tufts University Hirsh Health Sciences Library
145 Harrison Avenue
Boston, MA 02111

  • How do I pay using a Tufts DeptID?
    • Log into ILLiad and add the Tufts DeptID and account number information in the ‘Payment and Profile’ section. Then, when completing an ILLiad request form, select the account, and payment will automatically be made for that request and you will not receive an invoice soliciting payment.
