Borrowing from non-UBC Libraries – InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

REDUCED ABILITY TO FILL INTERLIBRARY LOAN REQUESTS

COVID-19 is impacting the ability of Interlibrary Loans to fill your requests. Numerous libraries are closed. In other cases, staff are working remotely and can only fill requests from electronic resources.

  • Books and other physical items – please do not submit requests for books, videos, etc. until the Library re-opens.
  • Articles – Staff in many libraries are working remotely and can only supply articles that are in electronic resources. We will make every effort to fill your copy requests but may not be able to do so if the item is only available in print.

Can’t find what you want at the UBC Library?

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) will order it for you from another Library.

How long will it take: This depends on the availability at other libraries. Articles can take 1-2 days, books at least 7 days. In some cases, it can be longer.

Before ordering please check the following:

NOTE: Requests for items held at UBC or available online will be cancelled.

COPYRIGHT – Requests will be cancelled if they exceed what is allowed under  the Canadian Copyright Law

Community Cardholders (including Alumni) will be charged a minimum of $30.00 per filled request.
