Can't find it at UBL

If an item is not available at Leiden University Libraries, you may request a book loan or article delivery from another Dutch university library or the Koninklijke Bibliotheek.

Interlibrary loan services (ILL) come with a fee: a book loan is €13,-, the fee for an article or book chapter is €6,50.

  • Find the title in WorldCat
  • Click on Find a copy in the library to see whether the item is available in a Dutch university library or the Koninklijke Bibliotheek (National Library of the Netherlands)
  • Click on Request through ILL and fill in the request form. Outside of the university network, please use our proxy server link to access the WorldCat ILL services

Articles

Articles and book chapters will be delivered electronically. As soon as a document is made available, you will receive an email containing a link and a password to be able to access the article. Articles will be available for a 30 day period, during which it can be accessed 5 times.

Book requests

Books requested via ILL can be picked up at the library location specified in your request. Delivery times usually range from a week to ten days. You will be notified by email as soon as an item is ready for pick-up.

For ILL loans, the UBL circulation policy applies.

PiCarta-account deposit refund

PiCarta-account holders can fill in our deposit refund form to request a refund of their remaining deposit. The refund option does not apply when the deposit was funded by your faculty or department. After checking the form and deposit data, the amount will be transferred to your bank account. This might take some time; we kindly ask for your understanding.
