What is Interlibrary Loan?

Do you need a resource that PNW Library does not have or that is currently checked out? We can try to get it for you!

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is the sharing of library materials Nationwide. We find and borrow the resources you need that are not owned by our library and lend our materials as well.

This is a free service to all current PNW students, staff, and faculty.

Material from All Purdue Campuses

Faculty, current staff, and students if you need library material from any of the Purdue campuses (Hammond, Westville, Fort Wayne, and West Lafayette) please use the PurdueBorrow Service.
