Interlibrary loan (ILL)

Items not owned by the Library may be requested from other libraries through the Interlibray Loan service (ILL).
In the new swisscovery system the SLSP-Courier service allows you to directly request a book online from one library and collect in another library of your choice.
→ How does SLSP-Courier work? (pdf in Italian)

If the book you are looking for is not available via SLSP-Courier or is not present in swisscovery, fill in the online Interlibrary loan form. Our libraries will locate a copy and order it for you.
