I'm an AU student. Can I get a book through interlibrary loan (ILL)?


We cannot request books for students through interlibrary loans. This is because the loaning libraries don't allow us enough time for you to get the book, read it, and mail it back to us.

When it comes to interlibrary loans students can request a copy of a chapter of a book, journal articles, or a paper from a conference.

If you are a member of your public library, you can try requesting the book through your library’s interlibrary program. The staff at your local library can help you place an order.

Athabasca University AU Library is also part of the Canadian University Reciprocal Borrowing Agreement (CURBA) that extends in-person borrowing privileges to AU students at other Canadian post secondary Institution libraries across the country. If you live near one of these libraries you may be able to borrow books from them. Click on this link to find out more through this FAQ How can I borrow an item from another library
