Interlibrary Loan

Tipasa ILL logo.

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a free resource-sharing service offered by the PAU Library that allows students, faculty, and staff to request electronic copies of journal articles and book chapters for educational purposes using Tipasa, PAU's ILL system. Tipasa is also used to provide reciprocal resource sharing services to other institutions, subject to specific lending terms and conditions.

The PAU Library does not provide physical items through ILL but does supply electronic copies of documents to the extent allowed by copyright laws and licensing terms (i.e., a single article from a journal or a single chapter from a book). However, PAU students, faculty and staff can request items that don't meet this standard using Tipasa, and these requests will be evaluated to determine if an alterative form of access can be provided by the library.

Use the links below for complete information about submitting ILL requests and requests for other items using Tipasa.

Please contact our ILL staff by emailing if you have any questions or need additional assistance with a Tipasa request. Questions regarding request policies and procedures should be directed to
