You can request interlibrary loans (ILL) for items not held in the OPL collection.

Please check the OPL Catalogue before requesting an ILL. Items published in the last 12 months and audio visual material cannot be requested via ILL.

For items available at libraries in the National Capital Region, please use SmartLibrary.
