Interlibrary Loan (ILL) - Borrowing from other Libraries

Request an Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) 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.

NB: As print books borrowed through interlibrary loan are the property of other institutions, patrons will need to pick up and return material at the Langley campus library. 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. For some search tips specific to articles, take a look at our Finding Full Text Guide.

Submit an ILL Request

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