Lilly Library Request System

Due to the ongoing risk of coronavirus, the Lilly Library Reading Room is closed to the public until further notice. Please check the Lilly Library website for further updates.

A Lilly Library Request System Account is required to use materials or order digital reproductions from the collections.

Please select your affiliation below. All first time users will be directed to a registration form to create a request account.


Lilly Library reference and digitization services will be closed from March 1, 2021 to at least August 15, 2021.

After a yearlong renovation project, our staff will be moving our collections back to our newly-renovated building and will not have access to materials during the move.

We are currently wrapping up questions and requests submitted before March 1; after that time, we will pause all services until at least August 15, 2021.
