Interlibrary Loan (ILL) - Borrowing from other Libraries: Interlibrary Loan Requests

Interlibrary Loan is a formal agreement among libraries to borrow books and obtain copies of journal articles from one another.  It enables TWU students, faculty and staff to obtain materials not owned by the TWU Library.  

Before placing your request, please kindly take into consideration that the library incurs significant time and costs acquiring ILLs. Print book requests, especially, may be difficult to fulfill or will take significantly longer to receive at this time. Thank you for understanding.

PLEASE CHECK OneSearch BEFORE PLACING REQUESTS. If you are still unsure if a book or journal article is available, contact the Research Help Desk

submit an ill request 

Until further notice, ILL requests are free for TWU students, staff, and faculty; $15 for alumni and community borrowers.
