The primary purpose of interlibrary loans (ILL) is to support research and teaching at the University of Pretoria by obtaining documents not available in our library from other libraries and also to supply documents requested by other libraries. Documents are requested from Southern African libraries as well as international libraries. The ILL department supports the interlending policies of the South African Interlending Scheme (SAIS) of the National Library of South Africa and of the GAELIC Document Supply Group.
Interlending is a service that can be used to obtain books and articles that are not available at the home library, from national and international libraries. If the item you need to get hold of is not in our library catalogue, electronic journals A-Z list, Google or Google Scholar, you can request the item from another South African or international library.
