Making an Interlibrary Loan Request
If UCLA does not own an item, users can request it through the interlibrary loan service. Users registered for the fee-based UCLA Library Document Delivery Service can also use this service to request materials available at UCLA.
Interlibrary loan requests can be submitted through the following methods:
To request an item directly from the UC-wide Melvyl Catalog or a database:
- Melvyl: search the catalog, then use the Request service
- Article Indexes and Databases: search the index or database, then use UC-eLinks
Request an item using a UC blank form:
- Book Request Form: this form can also be used to request videos, dissertations, scores, etc.
- Article Request Form
- Book Chapter Request Form
Checking the Status of a Request, Canceling a Request, or Renewing a Request
Users can check the status of a request, cancel a request, and request a renewal by logging in to Request Status.
