Interlibrary Loan

If we do not have the material you need, we can try to get it from a library that does.


ILLiad Management Software

ILLiad is the system that manages your requests from other libraries for materials not owned by Knox County Public Library. Your ILLiad sign-in may or may not be the same as your library account sign-in. Register if you do not already have an ILLiad account.


These basics are excerpted from the full policy:

  • You may have 3 active requests per card at a time.
  • Items must be at least 6 months old to be borrowed from other libraries.
  • We cannot borrow e-books, e-audiobooks, or digital MP3s. What can be borrowed: books, many audio and video types, microforms, and articles.

Is it too new for interlibrary loan?

Suggest a new item that the library doesn't have.
