Interlibrary Loan

What if I want a book or article that the library doesn't have?

You can request any book or article, even if the library doesn't have a copy, through Interlibrary Loan. The LNDL will borrow the item from another library on your behalf. Simply log into the ILL system, then fill out a request for the desired book or article. Articles and other digital materials usually will be delivered to your account within 24 hours. Books and other physical items will take about a week to arrive; you will be notified via email when items are ready for pickup.
