Log Into Materials Pick-Up / ILL


During the physical closure of UBC Library branches, the Library has implemented a materials pickup service for UBC students, faculty and staff only. Users can request a maximum of 10 items per week.

For now, UBC Community cardholders including Alumni cannot request material via this service. Please see the Library Service Updates page for more information.


The COVID-19 health event is impacting the ability of Interlibrary Loans to fill your requests. Numerous libraries are closed or are closing. In other cases, staff are working remotely and can only fill requests from electronic resources.

  1. Book and other physical items - Some libraries are accessing their print collections. If ILL cannot fill your request, you will be contacted about next steps.
  2. Articles - Many libraries are only accessing their electronic collections. Some libraries now have access to their print collections. We will make every effort to fill your copy requests but may not be able to do so if the journal or book is only available in print..

Thank you for your understanding.
