We are glad to be able to provide many interlibrary loan and document delivery services for free. However, there still may be times when there is a charge associated with your ILLiad request. We don’t always know at the outset which requests are free and which ones will incur a fee.

If you don’t want us to fill these requests for which you will be charged, we’ve made it a little easier to let us know on the ILLiad request form. Just select “yes” or “no” from the dropdown menu for the question: “Only If Free?”

Free Only


If you select yes, we will cancel the request if you would be charged for it.  Please email if you have any questions.  More information about when we do charge can be found on the ILLiad fee schedule.

Ahh, summer!  When the misery of winter is but a distant memory, and we are all baking in the heat collectively!  Other than no need to justify ice cream, one of the best things about summer are all the free events you can take advantage of.   Summer is the perfect time to discover Boston with some of the free events highlighted below:

Lastly, a great resource to search for free or low cost events in Boston all year round is the Boston Calendar.

Enjoy summer while it lasts!
