Working to improve the interlibrary loan experience

Open books

You may have noticed some changes to the way you place an interlibrary loan request. The Library has implemented a new interlibrary loan system that will allow your requests to be processed in a faster and more streamlined manner.

A new interlibrary form is available, if you have bookmarked the previous request form, you will need to update your bookmark.

You will see some additional buttons when logged in and using LibrarySearch. These buttons will appear on specific resources and offer options to obtain those resources from other Libraries via our Interlibrary Loan service.

The buttons will initially appear on a small number of titles and will increase in quantity over coming months. Please note that the timeframes specified on the buttons are estimated and are dependent on a number of factors.

Requests submitted via the form can be viewed via MyLibrary while they are being processed but will not be visible after each request is filled. Book loans remain visible in MyLibrary.

We appreciate your patience as we work to update our webpages and create a more efficient system for interlibrary loans.
