Interlibrary Loan Requests

Maybe you've found information about the perfect article in one of the databases but there's no full text.  Or you've found the perfect book in the catalog but it's checked out or at the Newtown campus.  You can request a copy of the book or article by submitting this form.  If the book's at Newtown we'll have it sent to UBC for you, or we'll try to find another library that has the book or article and send it to you.  Be aware, though, that if we need to get it from another library the process can take anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks, so this isn't something you can do at the last minute.
