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 (and External Readers with borrowing rights) may use the service, and charges of between €4.00 and €10.00 apply, depending on the item.

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