Current students, staff and faculty can request books, journal articles, and eBook chapters from other libraries by using our free Interlibrary Loans (ILL) service.

To place an interlibrary loan request, use the form below or contact the ILL department at 604.844.3077 or ill@ecuad.ca. You will be notified by email when your request is ready.


Delivery Times

Working days are Monday-Friday. Allow 3-5 working days for journal articles, which will be emailed to you via a download link, and up to 10 working days for books (or longer if material is coming from outside BC).

If you are on a tight deadline, it may be faster to borrow items from other BC post-secondary libraries in person as a reciprocal borrower.

Loan Times, Renewing and Returning

All loan periods are set by the lending libraries and are typically 3 weeks. The loan period will be indicated on the item.

Unfortunately you cannot always renew ILL items. To request a renewal, contact the ILL department by phone or email, or visit the library service desk.

Please return all ILL materials to the Emily Carr Library, NOT to the lending library (i.e. where the book came from).
