Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that provides Kingsborough Community College students, faculty, and staff access to library materials not available at the Robert J. Kibbee Library by obtaining the requested items from other libraries. Books and other returnable items borrowed through ILL must be returned to the circulation desk at Kingsborough. Articles and chapters or excerpts of books are transmitted to your ILLiad account as Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) facsimiles.
ILL requests are not accepted for textbooks. Please check to see if the textbook you want is available on reserve.
Books held by other libraries in the CUNY system should be requested through CLICS before trying ILL.
When searching for articles in a library database, always check to see if the article you want is available in another database or in our print or microfilm collection by using the function. If it is not, clicking on will give you the option to request the item through Interlibrary Loan and will automatically fill in the bibliographic data for you.
