Inter Library Loans

Public Libraries Victoria is required to move to a new statewide courier service for our interlibrary loans. This means that all Inter Library Loans are being suspended temporarily.

Inter Library Loans are suspended until further notice

Please be aware that all Inter Library Loans activity at Port Philip Library Service is suspended for the next month or two whilst a new courier system is being implemented by the Victorian Government. Port Phillip Library Service apologises for the short notice of this announcement, and we hope to resume the service by April. In the meantime, we encourage patrons to make a purchase request for any recently published material.

All Inter Library Loans that were submitted before Tuesday 25 October 2022 will still be completed.

No other Inter Library Loans will be allowed until the new courier system is finalised.

About ILLS

Items that are not held by Port Phillip Library Service can be requested through the Inter Library Loans service and are sourced from other library collections across Australia.

Although we can’t guarantee the availability or supply time of the material requested, most requests are successfully supplied within a few weeks.
