What is Interlibrary Loan? (ILL)


Interlibrary Loan is a no-cost service offered to current UNC Charlotte students, faculty, and staff. If the Library doesn’t have something you’re looking for, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) can try to get it for you. 

You place requests for books through the ILL system and they will check if another library can send it over for you to use.

You can also place requests for individual book chapters and journal articles with our Document Delivery service. The Interlibrary Loan team can scan portions of materials that you need and email them to you. If our library does not own the materials you want scanned, ILL will send a request out for another library to fulfill it.

You can visit the Interlibrary Loan webpage for more information.
