Interlibrary Loan

Welcome to Interlibrary Loan! We look forward to helping you acquire the resources that you need.

Attention: The Melvyl Request service is currently unavailable to off-campus users. The issue is expected to be resolved very soon. Please contact ILL staff at or 831-459-2234 for assistance in the meantime. Users may also request items normally on-campus. We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you.

The Interlibrary Loan borrowing service allows UCSC faculty, staff and students to borrow materials from other libraries if items are not available at the UCSC Library.
