Interlibrary Loan / ILL


Interlibrary Loan means the procurement of information sources that are not available in the library collections from other institutions subject to lending criteria of such institutions. Average delivery time of book and article requests is 2-3 days.



“Interlibrary Loan (ILL)” and “Document Supply” services can only be used by the academic personnel, administrative personnel and PhD students of Bahçeşehir University.
Requests for information sources that are not available in the library are made online by filling out the ILL form on the library’s website and requests that are made in person are not accepted.
The person who makes an ILL request must check prior to making request if the item is available at Bahçeşehir University’s library catalogue. (http://library.bahcesehir.edu.tr).
Book and article requests with incomplete bibliographic information will be reported to the person making the request and requests will be processed after the missing information is completed.
Requests for books and articles which have missing bibliographic information and are not proved to exist are reported to the person making the request and cancelled.
After the requested material is received by the library, the person making the request is informed by phone or e-mail of when and where he/she will receive the material.
Renewal of materials that are borrowed from other institutions is subject to ILL policy of lending institution.
Materials that are delivered under an ILL request should be received from and returned to the “Technical Services Office” between 08:30 a.m. – 17:30 p.m. on weekdays.
