Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the process through which a library borrows material from another library or organization. 

Requesting Items

If you have a full citation for a book, book chapter, or article, you can log on to ILLiad and enter the information.

If you'd like to search for a book, use WorldCat.  Items that Bertrand Library does not own will feature a red "Get It" button.  Click this button to start the interlibrary loan process.  Keep in mind that if you are a first time user of ILLIAD, you will need to register before you may request items.
