Full-text Not Available? Try ILL.

Sometimes you may not be able to get the full-text of a journal article because the Library does not have a subscription to the journal. In this case, you can request a copy of the article via our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service.

  • Interlibrary loan is integrated into OneSearch, so always start by searching OneSearch to see if PolyU Library holds the item required.
  • Ensure that you have signed in your library account (MyRecord).
  • Select “Beyond PolyU (HKALL + InterLibrary Loan)” from the top drop down menu. Then input the title, author, or keywords of the item required. Click the magifier icon to excecute your search.
  • On the result list, look for the item required.  If it is listed, click "Check for available services" or "Get it for me from other libraries".
  • In the record, look for the blue cards for requesting a physical book, a digital copy of a selected book chapter or a journal article.  (Tips: You must sign in to see the options.)
  • The type of cards displayed depends on the availability of the item, its format and your user privileges.  The estimated delivery time is for reference only. Follow the instruction to input the required information.
  • If the item cannot be requested from our partner libraries,  "No physical/digital copy can be requested" or "No available services for this item" will be displayed.
  • Academic/Research Staff or Postgraduate Students may fill in a blank form at the top of the result list to request the Library to source a required item beyond our partner libraries.  Please provide complete citation information. Including the ISBN / ISSN will shorten the processing time.
