Interlibrary Loan Service Update
Interlibrary Loan Service Interruptions

July 27, 2021

You might have noticed that the UC Libraries are moving to a new platform, UC Library Search. There will be some slight service interruptions during this time. Specifically, we are going to have to reconfigure our interlibrary loan (ILL) system to work with the new system. We will also have to do some testing and training once that process is complete.

During this time you will not be able to place ILL requests as you normally would. We ask that you use this form to place urgent requests during this time. You can also e-mail if you have any questions.
