Interlibrary Loan Card

The mission of NCCU Libraries is to provide comprehensive resources, advance the academic mission of the University and enrich the life of NCCU community.

In order to expand the reading resources, NCCU libraries cooperate with other local libraries by providing Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services.

I. How to Apply?
