InterLibrary Loans (ILL)

The Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Service at Hamilton Library will obtain books, articles, chapters, and other materials that are not available within the UH system libraries for UHM patrons. The ILL section works with libraries and document suppliers across the US and internationally.

All current UH Mānoa students, faculty, staff, and affiliates are eligible for these services in support of their academic and university related research activities. We are not able to offer interlibrary loan service to alumni or community users.

Use to fill blank request forms.

ILL request links are also available within the UHM OneSearch catalog and other UHM electronic databases.

COVID-19 Impact on Hamilton Library's ILL Services

Our ability to provide interlibrary loans is greatly influenced by the availability of library services at other academic institutions on the mainland and internationally. Access to other libraries will depend upon their local pandemic conditions.

  • It may take longer to borrow physical books, microfilms, DVDs, etc.
  • Some items may be hard to get if there are no lenders available
  • It may be easier to obtain chapters than entire book loans

Need something urgently? Please contact the ILL staff by email at or by phone at 808-956-8568

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. Note: Due to copyright restrictions, we cannot request scans of entire books, neither as a single scan of the entire item, nor by submitting many individual chapter requests to comprise the entire book.
