Inter Library Loans: Getting Started

What is Inter Library Loans

When UCC Library does not own a copy of a book or journal the Inter Library Loans service may be able to source these from other Libraries worldwide.

Any patron with a valid Library ID card can apply and there may be a charge depending on the item in question.

Go straight to ONLINE APPLICATION or click on the tab above for guidelines on how to apply.
