If UCLA does not own an item, UC students, faculty, and staff can request it through the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service. There is no charge for this service for UCLA students, faculty and staff. 

  • Your UCLA Library account number is the nine-digit number (aka your Bruin ID) that appears on the front of your BruinCard, plus the single digit that appears on the back side, lower righthand corner of your BruinCard. Enter all ten digits without any spaces.
  • Only a University of California e-mail address or an address registered in your library account is valid.

Submit an Interlibrary Loan Request.  The Interlibrary Loan Service enables UC students, faculty, and staff to borrow materials not available in UCLA Libraries. You don't have to specify a location, UCLA will automatically search for availability in other libraries, both in this country and abroad.

Check the status of your Interlibrary Loan Request. Sign in to your UCLA Library Account to determine the status of your ILL requests.
