Borrow from another library

ITPLD cardholders can borrow materials from other libraries through interlibrary loan (ILL).


Interlibrary loan is free unless the supplying library charges a fee.

If you are willing to pay a fee for a specific item, please indicate the maximum amount on your request. Replacement cost and processing fees incurred as a result of loss or damage are the responsibility of the member. Delivery times will vary.


All materials may be borrowed through ILL except

  • video games
  • e-books
  • e-audiobooks
  • e-readers
  • reference materials
  • new items (owned less than 6 months). Article reprint requests may be placed at any service desk.
