Interlibrary Loans

Interlibrary Loans information for De Chastelain Library.

The Interlibrary loan (ILL) service offers access to material you may occasionally need, that is not available through the Library or freely online.  If this material is available within the Republic of Ireland, we will try to borrow it from another library on your behalf.  We ask that you plan your research well and give plenty of time for Interlibrary loans to arrive.  Please complete the relevant request form below.  All correspondence will be sent to your Institute email account only, so please check it regularly.

Please search MultiSearch, the library search engine, before making an ILL request.

Material you require not in the Library?

Option 1

Borrow material from another library by making an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request. When requesting books, items that are available in other Institutes of Technology (IOTs) are preferred.

Option 2

Request a Letter of Introduction to allow you to visit another library. Find Out More
