Faculty: Interlibrary Loans (Articles)

Interlibrary Loans (Articles)

As an NIC instructor, you have access to the collections of all post-secondary libraries in B.C. If you are unable to find articles through the NIC Library collection, we may be able to bring the article in for you from another B.C. Library using the interlibrary loan program.

NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, books and media are not currently available through the interlibrary loan program.

How to place an interlibrary loan request when only the abstract is available

If the article you are looking for is not available in full text through the library catalogue, you will see the linked words 'Where can I get this'. Once clicked, this link will check all library databases to see if there is a full text version available in print or on any other library databases. If the article is not available, you will see the linked words 'Place an Interlibrary Loan Request'. Fill out the form with your contact information and a link to the article will be sent to you typically within a week. The email will come from TitanFile and is sometimes sent to your email's junk items.

How to place an interlibrary loan request when the library does not carry the journal

If the library does not carry the journal you're looking for, you can request the article through the interlibrary service, ILLume. Once you've found the article you'd like to request you can click on the "Request this Item" button, which brings up the ILL Request form. Fill out the form with your contact information and a link to the article will be sent to you typically within a week. The email will come from TitanFile and is sometimes sent to your email's junk items.

NOTE: During the COVID-19 pandemic, article delivery time may be longer.
