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

To borrow books from other libraries, search UC Library Search and sign in. Click on UCR Request if we own the item. If UCR doesn't own a copy, click on Request through Interlibrary Loan and complete the form. An email notification will be sent for pick-up at the selected service desk when the item has arrived.

To borrow articles or book chapters, search UC Library Search and sign in. Click on Article/Chapter Scan if we own the item. If UCR doesn't own a copy, click on Request Other Issue for a physical loan or Digitize Other Issue for a electronic copy. An email will be sent for electronic access to scanned articles/chapter once processed.

To request articles found in our library databases, click on Get it at UC button. You will get the full text of the article if you are logged into the campus VPN. If it isn't accessible to UCR users , you can click on Request through Interlibrary Loan.

For requests made through UC Library Search, you can manage your request through My Library Account. To manage request submitted before the implementation of UC Library Search, go to My ILL Requests. For help, contact the Interlibrary Loan unit.
