Interlibrary Loan


Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is getting an upgrade this summer. We have a new platform and you can log in to your new ILL account with your myWCU account credentials.

What will you have to do?

Nothing! Your account will be set up and ready to go in August.

Looking for your old requests?

Log into your old account and copy and paste your past requests to a Word document. They are available under View > Request History. Be sure to download and save any PDFs available in View > Articles to Read. After December 1st, this information will be permanently deleted.

Need to request an account?

You can request an account in the new ILL system if needed.

Contact libraryloan@wcu or your library liaison if you have any questions.

How do I access my account?

Which option do I choose?

WCU students, staff, and faculty should click the top button and use their myWCU credentials to log in. You can check the "Remember my choice" option and never see this screen again!

WCU emeritus faculty, retired faculty and staff, and others who do not have an active WCU email account will need to request an ILL account through Hunter Library. Once approved, they will use the Affiliated Users button to log in.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If you need a book, article, or other library item for university-related purposes and it is not available at Hunter Library or from Western North Carolina Library Network libraries at Appalachian State or UNC-Asheville via ABC Express, we can locate and obtain it for you at no charge.


  • Articles are generally delivered electronically and may take as little as 1 or 2 days, but can take longer. Books generally arrive in 1-2 weeks.

  • ILL items may be picked up at the Hunter Library Circulation Desk during library open hours.

     Items are shipped directly to distance education students.
