Find Books in US and International Libraries: WorldCat and Inter Library Loan (ILL)

Search for books available in libraries throughout the world using WorldCat. You can request books through InterLibrary Loan (ILL).  

InterLibrary Loan or ILL is a service that allows you to request books owned by other libraries all over the US -- and in some cases, around the world!  Once you've placed a request, another library will send the book to Holy Cross for your use. 

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Depending on where a book is traveling from, it can take up to 1-2 weeks (though usually less) to arrive. Make sure to plan ahead!
  • ILL books often have shorter checkout periods than books you borrow from HC Libraries. When your book arrives, it will come with a sticker indicating the due date.

Once you locate an item you would like to request, find this box in the WorldCat record and click ILLiad Interlibrary Loan

 Then log-in, fill in the information required, then hit Submit Request
