Interlibrary Loans: Submit a Request

If VIU Library doesn't have access to certain books or articles that you need for your research, we may be able to get them for you from other libraries. This process is called Interlibrary Loan, and it's FREE for VIU students and employees.

Questions? Watch the video to the right or e-mail ill@viu.ca or phone us at 250.740.6330.

When will it arrive?

Journal articles: 2-3 days

Books: 1-2 weeks

Note: These times are estimates. Items may arrive sooner or later depending on where they are shipped from.
