Interlibrary Loan

Last Modified December 6, 2022.

Requests for printed works and other physical materials may be made at this time. However please be aware that our ability to successfully fill requests and the turnaround time it takes to receive them will be slower than usual due to continued library closures around the world and our commitment to safety for our patrons and library staff.

ILL requests should be made through UC Library Search.

If you can't request the item you need or are experiencing difficulties, please submit your ILL request using our Blank ILL Request Form. Include as much information as you can in your request (ex. Title, author, ISBN, ISSN, etc.)

Use My Library Account through UC Library Search to manage your ILL items from other UCs.

Use My ILL Requests to manage your ILL items from libraries outside of the UC system.

Please email ILL staff at or text us at 949-303-7535 with any questions. We thank you for your understanding and patience.

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service enables UCI students, faculty, and staff to borrow materials from other libraries that are not available at the UCI Libraries. Requests are made by using UC Library Search.* 

*Connect from off-campus using the VPN  for best results.
