Currently enrolled UC students, faculty and staff may borrow materials from another participating library. 

To borrow books from other libraries, search the Melvyl (UC) catalog and click "Request". Enter your barcode and choose your home library as UCR. 

To borrow articles, search one of our licensed databases, or Google Scholar, and click on UC-eLinks.

For items outside of Melyvl or our licensed databases, use the UC-eLinks Citation Linker.

Interlibrary loan requests take 3-5 business days to process. Check the status of your request at My ILL Requests. An email notification will be sent for pick-up at the selected service desk. For articles, an email will be sent for electronic access. For help, contact the Interlibrary Loan unit.
