From January 28th a new borrowing system will be introduced to facilitate anyone wishing to request books or articles from other libraries.

How to order
If you are searching for books or articles in LibSearch that are not available in our own collection, you can request them by simply pressing the  “Request through ILL”  button. Books can be collected from the library desk in the Main Building; digital copies will be sent straight to your mailbox.
Please note that ILL requests are subject to charges which can be paid at the library desk. VU and VUmc employees will be billed through their department.

From January 28th, Picarta will no longer be in service and can no longer be accessed for placing requests.
