Providence Healthcare Virtual Library

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 Providence Healthcare Resource Center. Materials can be requested by you, and the Information Specialist will locate where the materials can be borrowed and have them delivered to you by email or for pick-up in the Library Photocopier Room.

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 or  Catalogue to ensure the item is not in our collection.

How much does it cost?
