InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

An InterLibrary Loan is yet another service that is offered at the Consortium Library. It is a free service that lets you borrow materials from libraries around the world. You are able to place a hold using your UAA/APU email and password. The material(s) is then sent from the other library to the Consortium library where it will be available for you to pickup.

Depending on the type of item requested will determine the length of time that it will take to get to the library.
