Inter-Library Loans and Document Supply

Inter Library Loans and Document Supply Overview

What are Inter-Library Loans?

The Inter-Library Loans and Document Supply service can help you access items not available within the Yeats Library Collections. Requested items are sourced from partner and external library collections, and document suppliers.

Who can request ILLs?

The service provides support to the learning and teaching of all current registered students, staff and researchers at the Atlantic Technological University, Sligo.

Items which can be requested include:

  • Books
  • Book chapters
  • Conference proceedings
  • Journal articles
  • Theses/Dissertations

Before Requesting

Please ensure you have checked both Eolas Search and Publication Finder before submitting a request via the online Inter-Library Loan Request form.

Document Supply

The service is heavily subsidised by Yeats Library and is therefore restricted to items needed for your research or teaching. It cannot be used to obtain material for personal or leisure use.

Please use our online request form to fill out the details of the article you require.
