VIU Library’s Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services enables our users to request items such as books, articles, and reports that are not available in our own collection.
Before requesting an ILL, please search the VIU catalogue for your title. Also, if you are searching for technical reports, please use the pages provided in this guide to try to locate reports which may be available online on a government website (e.g. Technical Reports - Forestry).
If you are still unable to get a technical report via either of the above options, then request an Interlibrary Loan, using the online form which is linked below. The VIU Library will then borrow this report from another library collection.
Once your ILL request has arrived at our library, you will be sent an email informing you that you can pick it up at the Service Desk (Library Main/3rd Floor).
You can search for other technical reports that may be available in other library collections in the WorldCat Catalogue (below) or in the Waves catalogue. Once you've located a citation, you can then request an Interlibrary Loan for this report.
