Interlibrary Loans (ILLs)

ILLs for NATO HQ staff:

NATO Library offers the possibility for NATO HQ staff to make a request for items that are not in our collections but are in the collections of other libraries (both national and international libraries). Please, contact us and we will be happy to assist you!


ILLs for Non-NATO staff:

Non-NATO staff may borrow books from the Library's collection only through their local library as we only lend books to other libraries. As an individual, please ask your local library to request an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) with us.
