Illume – Interlibrary Loan

*Illume is the interlibrary loan service formerly known as “BC Outlook Online” and now part of the BC Union Catalogue (BCUC).

Requesting Interlibrary Loan Books

If you weren’t able to find the item you wanted in our catalogue, you can find it elsewhere in BC using Illume, a catalogue for all BC libraries.

If you find something at another library, you can request an interlibrary loan to have the item delivered to your local library for pickup.

Note that you may only borrow two books per week. You may not borrow DVDs, CDs or books that were published within the past year by Interlibrary Loan.

As well, we keep Interlibrary Loan material behind the Service Desk, unlike regular holds / requests for safe-keeping so please speak to PRPL staff when your item is ready for pick-up.
