Use Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

This information pertains to Biola students, staff, faculty, faculty emeriti, and board members. Guests and alumni are not eligible to use this service. These individuals may access ILL services through their local public library or their own academic institution library.

If the material you need is unavailable through the Biola library, you may use ILL to request it from another library. Book chapters and articles only available in a print format can also be requested through ILL and will be delivered digitally. All other items must be picked up in person at the Biola Library.


Before Requesting Material

Before requesting material through ILL, see Get Started with Library Research to determine whether the item you need is available through the library. Material not available through Biola Library may be requested through ILL and picked up at Biola. Book chapters and articles only available in a print format may also be requested through ILL, and a digital scan will be provided.
