Navigating UC Library Search

Interlibrary Loan

If UCLA does not own an item, UC students, faculty, and staff can request it through the interlibrary loan (ILL) service.

Off-campus users who wish to request materials from UCLA can contact their local public or college libraries to request interlibrary loans of UCLA books or request photocopies of specific articles through the document delivery service.
