Borrowing Books from other Libraries

Materials not available in the Purdue North Central library may be borrowed from other libraries (locally or nationwide) through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service. ILL is a free service for PNC faculty students, and staff. Books are generally delivered with in 6 days and articles are generally received within a few days and are emailed to the borrower. ILL requests are made online using ILLiad for which the faculty, student, or staff member must register for an ILL account.
