The UNBC Library is moving to a new Interlibrary Loan system in June. During this transition, there may be some delays in processing requests.
Between May 1st and June, ILL forms will have to be filled in manually. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we work to improve our ILL services! Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Interlibrary Loans (ILL) is a service that allows you to access material not at the UNBC Library. Can't find the article or book that you need here? We can get it for you from another library.
If you are a distance student, staff, or faculty and you would like to have library material shipped to you, please use the "Request" button in the library catalogue and enter a note to have it shipped. Please do not use the ILL forms to request material from our collection.
The following charges apply to all interlibrary loan requests:
|Faculty, Staff, Students||No Charge|
|Alumni||$5.00 OR cost of item if exceeds the base rate-will notify by email|
|Community Borrowers||$10.00 OR cost of item if exceeds the base rate-will notify by email|
|Overdues||$1.00 per day, per item, no maximum|
|Lost Items||Replacement cost plus $20 processing fee|
Students, Faculty and Staff at UNBC are welcome to place interlibrary loan requests through the following forms:
