Interlibrary Loan/Request It

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Purchase Requests have been combined and are now called Request It.

New to ILL and Purchase Requests?

  • Set up a Request It account. Enter your PPLD library card number (your card needs to start with a number “4”) and PIN to register.

Already have an ILL account?

  • Apart from a few labels, ILL has not changed.
  • Purchase Requests will now be done using WorldCat and your Request It account (formerly ILL account).

Place a request

Follow these steps to place an ILL or Purchase Request:

  1. Search the Library Catalog first to see if PPLD owns the item
  2. Not in our catalog? Search WorldCat to find the item you would like to request
  3. Select the title for more information
  4. Click on the blue "Request Item" button
  5. Enter your Request It (formerly ILL) login information
  6. Make sure all required fields are filled out
  7. Click the "Submit Request" button

Manage your requests

You can now track and manage your ILL and Purchase Requests through Request It.

  • Login to your Request It account.
  • Check on the status of an existing item or request an ILL renewal.
  • Can't find an item in WorldCat? Login to your Request It account to fill out an Item, Article, or Microfilm request form.

I put in a recent request, but it was denied. Your response was that you would copy up to 20 pages. Would you please copy the section on the Kinser family as far back into Germany that is listed, up to the family's pedigree and possible personal and historical details in the US. (In German language, the family's original name was Kuntzer).

Thank you,


A friend just recommended Stormy Cove on goodreads and its set in Newfoundland where I used to live so I would like to read it.
So far its not available in our library system.

Now that ILL and purchase request have been combined, am I limited to a total of six such requests at any one time? Or has the link to purchase request mysteriously disappeared?

I'm asking for the purchase of the latest book from Orca Books' Rapid Reads series, namely,
Tokyo Girl by Bryan Harvey, published last month, 9781459810761 .

This series is very good for adult learners and PPLD has acquired all of the books (at my request) published over the past three years.

Hi, thank you for your comments. With the recent merging of the Interlibrary Loan and purchase request system, we currently have left the request limit at 6 items total. We expected an increase in the number of requests (which has happened) so we wanted to make sure we could keep up with demand. We will be reviewing this policy in the near future to see if the 6 item limit will stay the same or change. Thank you!

Thanks for purchasing _Tokyo Girl_. I have another purchase request, for the latest volume of the Who Was series, namely _Who Is Bruce Springsteen_ by Stephanie Sabol, 978-0448487038.
