Interlibrary Loan

Log-in to ILL

For most people, your ILL account is the same as your CougarNet.

You must register your account if you’ve never used ILL before.

If the library does not have an item you need, use interlibrary loan (ILL) to get it.

ILL is used for

  • Borrowing materials not available from UH Libraries
  • Scanning and delivering articles to faculty and graduate students
  • Delivering library materials to distance education students
  • Lending UH materials to other libraries

Faculty Delivery Service

For UH Libraries users

For most people, your ILL account is the same as your CougarNet.

If you are a first time ILL user, please register your ILL account. A CougarNet account and UH email address are required.

If you do not have a CougarNet account, please contact ILL directly.

Alumni are eligible for ILL with UH Alumni Cards.

For other libraries
