Requesting material from other libraries

THUAS Library offers students and staff members a service known as interlibrary loans: if books or journal articles are not available in its own collection, they can be requested from another library through the Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service. Requests should be submitted using the ILL Request Form (Due to the holiday period, it is temporarily not possible to process ILL requests. As of August 26, ILL requests can be submitted again) with one form being used for each request. You will then receive an email confirming your request.


This service is offered free of charge to THUAS staff. The following rates apply to students: 

BooksSupplied as requested€ 4 per book
Requested but not supplied€ 2 per book
Journal articlesSupplied as requested

1-10 pages: € 4 

>10: € 0.60 per additional page

Requested but not supplied€ 2,00 per article
Loans from foreign libraries* Special charges applyOn request

*Foreign loans cannot be taken out and may only be consulted in the library.

Please note: Charges on ILL requests are non-refundable, even if a request is cancelled or delivered late.


To renew ILL books, we have to ask the owner for permission. Requests for renewal can be made to, at the ground-floor helpdesk, or by phone at (0)70 445 7882. Remember, however, that it’s not always possible to renew an ILL book.
