Interlibrary loan

Interlibrary loan

If you are in need of material that is not in the library's collections, we will do our best to procure it from another library via interlibrary loan. The service is free of charge for AAU students and staff. If the material is easily obtained, it will take less than a week.  However, if it is not easily obtained (e.g. out on loan), it may take a couple of weeks, or months, before we kan get hold of it for you.

Please remember to check the library's holdings in Primo before you order via interlibrary loan. It is much quicker to get it from us, if it is in our collections. Should it be a simple case of the material being out on loan, and you are unable to wait for it to be returned, please contact the staff, who will look into the possibilites of procuring the material before your deadline.
