Interlibrary Loans

The Darling Library provides an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service in which we borrow books from other libraries on behalf of our patrons.

To initiate an Interlibrary Loan request, fill out an online ILL request form. A Request on Interlibrary Loan button will present itself to eligible library users who have logged in whenever an item is not available in or through the Darling Library. Printed forms are also available in the library.

Who is eligibile? Interlibrary Loan services are offered to all Hope International University faculty, staff, trustees, and registered students in good standing with the Darling Library.

Borrowers must submit an ILL request form and agree to abide by copyright restrictions, and any borrowing restrictions and costs imposed by the lending library.

ILL services are usually free but some lending library charge for some materials. When submitting an ILL Request Form include the amount you are willing to pay for the requested item.

The average turnaround time for most transactions is two weeks.

For more information, contact the Interlibrary Loan office at ext. 1223 or email
