Borrow Items from Around the World

Can’t find your item in Coastline?  Southwestern Library may be able to borrow it from another library via Interlibrary Loan (ILL).  ILLs are free for our students and employees.   All you need is a Coastline library card (in good standing) and a Southwestern ID number.  If the item is available, loans take around 7 to 12 days to arrive.  Article requests tend to arrive more quickly and are sent to you via email.  Please pick up ILLs at Southwestern Library only.


To complete your request, please send an email with the information below to [email protected].
