Interlibrary Loans

BCIT students, faculty & staff

Information about inter-library loan privileges for BCIT students and faculty & staff can be found in the services sections of the library website.

NOTE: Due to COVID-19, delivery time may be longer than normal.  Numerous libraries are closed and this has impacted our ability to obtain material and articles.

Other Libraries & Organizations Wishing to Borrow from BCIT Library

Not all materials are available for interlibrary loan. Agreements are in place governing charges to other BC Electronic Library Network members. Invoices will be issued by our finance department under separate cover and payment is due upon receipt. Other libraries will be charged as follows:

  • Loans: $25.00 per item
  • Photocopies: $10.00 minimum up to 20 pages; $0.20 per additional page

Renewals are granted case by case. All loans are subject to recall.

For sites with an ILL management system, GSM requests directed to BCIT should be submitted to and ISO requests to respectively.  Requests may also be submitted through OCLC WorldShare (IFM billing preferred), and BC ELN’s Illume.

For sites without an ILL management system, and wish to use our online forms to submit requests, please contact us to have an account created for this purpose.
