What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

 

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a system of borrowing and lending resources used by libraries worldwide.

Interlibrary Loan service is a valuable process creating an opportunity to the researchers of accessing the information not available in the host library. For this reason, it is very important for our library to contribute "the spread of information through sharing" and cooperating with other Libraries / Information Centers in the world through the interlibrary loan service by borrowing from other libraries and lending to other libraries.

By ILL service, our Library provides; books, article copies and/or other materials as loans or copies (borrowing items and/or having copies of items), that do not exist in our library, from other libraries in the country or abroad, for our users.

Materials borrowed through the Interlibrary loan service are short-term loans, usually 3-4 weeks.  Long-term research or semester loans are not possible through the ILL.
