Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that provides Kingsborough Community College patrons access to books, book chapters, and articles not available at the Robert J. Kibbee Library by obtaining the requested items from other libraries. Books borrowed through ILL must be returned to the Robert J. Kibbee Library. Patrons may keep copies of articles and book chapters acquired through ILL.
Books held by other libraries in the CUNY system may be requested through CLICS.
When searching for articles in a library database, always check to see if the article you want is available in another database or in our print or microfilm collection by using the
function. If it is not , clicking on "Find it!" will give you the option of requesting the item through Interlibrary Loan and will automatically fill the bibliographic data for you.
For more detailed instructions, see our answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Requesting Books through OCLC WorldCat
You may find books in other libraries by using WorldCat, a union catalog of thousands of libraries worldwide. If WorldCat indicates that Kingsborough owns the book you can of course obtain it here, and if it indicates that CUNY owns it you can request it through CLICS. If no CUNY library owns the book (or if it is unavailable for some reason) you can request it by clicking on Request through ILLiad next to External Resources. (See example).
