Springer’s Inter-Library Loan (ILL) policy

For the Americas:
Authorized users of institutions holding a Springer license in the Americas are allowed to digitally transfer copies of journal articles and book chapters for fulfilment of ILL requests for academic, research, or other non-commercial libraries. Follow normal Fair Use and CONTU guidelines covering the permitted amount of such ILL activity. Authorized users of subscribing institutions without a Springer license are allowed to output copies of articles for postal or faxed fulfilment of ILL requests for academic, research, or other non-commercial libraries, also following Fair Use and CONTU guidelines on the permitted amount of such activity. Digital transmission of articles is not permitted for institutions without a license. Authorized users may print and store individual articles and chapters for educational purposes and off-line review.


For Rest of the World:
Authorized users are allowed to output copies of articles for postal or faxed fulfilment of ILL requests for academic, research, or other non-commercial libraries. Digital transmission of articles is not permitted. Authorized users may print and store reasonable numbers of individual articles for educational purposes and off-line review.
