About the Library

Interlibrary loan

Requesting books and articles from other libraries.

Are you looking for an article or book which is not available in the HU Library collection? You can put in a request from other library collections via Interlibrary loan (ILL)

Requesting books and articles is free of charge for (temporary) HU employees. Other borrowers pay € 6,50 for an article and € 7,50 for a book.
The costs of an interlibrary request from a library abroad are €17.

Please send your request to IBL@hu.nl.

Please note: due to Corona measures, it is not possible to put in a book request at this time. Your request will be canceled. If you still need the book after April 6, we ask you to put in a new request.

It is however still possible to put in online article requests. Until the library opens again, requesting online articles from other libraries is now also free for students.
