Interlibrary Loan/Request It

ImportantInterlibrary Loan Changes during PPLD’s Phased Reopening:
  • Item limit update – The number of Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and purchase requests allowed per library card is now four active requests. This number includes ILL items that are checked out and ILL/purchase requests in processing.
  • Anticipate increased wait time – We expect requests to take longer to fulfill (borrowing or purchasing), with a potential wait time of four to eight weeks.
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).
