About Interlibrary Loan

When you fill out an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request, we ask libraries throughout the entire United States, not just Pima County, if they will lend us the item (print book, copy, or microform) you are looking for.

Items borrowed through Interlibrary Loan do not belong to PCPL. See the Limitations and Rules to the right.

If you are looking for a recently published book, audiobook, eBook, or DVD, please use our Suggest a Purchase form instead. You must be logged in to suggest a purchase.
