What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?

Interlibrary Loan services let you borrow materials (i.e. journal articles, books, DVDs) from other libraries when those materials are not in the collection of the Unity Health Toronto Health Sciences Library. Materials can be requested by you, and the Health Sciences Library will locate where the materials can be borrowed and have them delivered to you by email or for pick-up at the Library.

How do I submit an Interlibrary Loan request?

Before placing a request, please check to make sure the item is not already held in our Library -- we cannot request materials from another library if they are in our collection. You can search our Journals, Articles, or Books to ensure the item is not in our collection.

Couldn't find it? Use the online ILL Request Form

NOTE: For requests consisting of 10 or more citations, please contact before submitting form.

How Much Does it Cost?

As of March 1, 2023 there is no cost for Interlibrary Loans for Unity Health Toronto staff, learners, or physicians.
