Tip of the Week

Do you need an item that we don't own or is already checked out by someone else at UCR? Get it through our Interlibrary Loan REQUEST Service. ILL is usually free and can be used for both books and journal articles, as well as other materials. The service is available to currently enrolled UC students, faculty and staff.

How long does it take?

We act on your request immediately. The time it takes to send out and receive back Interlibrary Loan material varies, depending upon the material requested. Some material is rapidly available from other campuses of the University and state colleges, while other publications have to be requested out-of-state or from private institutions.  ILL request generally take 3-5 working days. To check the status of your request go to My ILL Requests.

Note: Students may not request required textbooks or course books through interlibrary loan.
