Pepperdine Interlibrary Loan ILL

Interlibrary Loan Services

Books, book chapters and journal articles not included in Pepperdine's collection may be requested through Interlibrary Loan. Through the use of a nationwide computerized library network and cooperative lending agreements with other libraries, eligible Pepperdine University library users have access to library resources nationwide.

Interlibrary Loan Service is provided free only to eligible Pepperdine University faculty, staff and students.

Choose one of two options to submit interlibrary loan requests:

  1. Pepperdine University Libraries Catalog  -  Submit your request directly during your online search in the library's catalog.
  2. Tipasa -  Submit your request through the Interlibrary Loan request form on the Library Home page.

We are eager to facilitate your research needs and encourage you to plan your anticipated borrowing requests well in advance of need.

Please do not submit requests for course textbooks.  In general, lending libraries do not make textbooks or ebooks available through Interlibrary loan.

If you are pursuing a research project that calls for borrowing special or unusual items, please consult with us directly as you plan your research strategy.
