Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)is a system that allows faculty, students and staff to request materials not available at the Trocaire College Libraries from other sharing libraries.

If the item is a book, the lending library determines the loan period for materials borrowed through ILL. If you wish to renew an ILL item, contact the Trocaire College Libraries before it is due. Renewing items is dependent upon the lending library’s policies. Borrowers will be responsible for the cost of a lost or damaged item. This service may take up to 7-10 days for the item to be delivered to Trocaire College.
If the item requested is a journal article, either a PDF or a web link is sent to your Trocaire email. Links do expire. Please check the date of expiration.
