Need a Book Not Owned by the Library?

If you would like to use a book that is not owned by the ACPHS Libraries you can take advantage of our free interlibrary loan service ILLiad to request the book.

Interlibrary loan (ILL)  is a service that allows ACPHS students, faculty and staff to borrow materials from other libraries.  A book ordered through ILL will be delivered to the ACPHS Library for you.
