COVID-19 Update: While the Library is closed in accordance with the Governor's shelter-in-place order, Interlibrary Loan will continue to provide modified services and will make every effort to fill your requests electronically.

In order to take advantage of ILL services, new faculty and staff should request activation of their Library accounts using this online form.

RENEWALS OF ILL ITEMS: Most ILL items have been renewed to January 21, 2021 or later in your Library Account and in your My ILL Requests account. 

The Interlibrary Loan service allows UCSB students, faculty, and staff to borrow from other libraries if items are not available at the UCSB Library.  Community patrons and UC alumni are not eligible for UCSB ILL services.

The UCSB Library subscribes to the National Interlibrary Loan Code of the American Library Association as well as to regional agreements, and adheres strictly to copyright law. 

Interlibrary Loan related inquiries can be directed to (805) 893-3436 or library-ill@ucsb.edu. Holidays aside, in person service with ILL staff is available at the UCSB Library Services Desk Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.
