Dear Patrons

The Interlibrary Loan Service (ILS) supports research needs of OUM’s students, faculty and staff by obtaining materials which are not available at OUM Digital Library. Before you may request for Inter-Library Loan, the said book must not be available at Tan Sri Dr. Abdullah Sanusi Digital Library either in Printed Form or Electronic Format. You will have to verify that a book is not available in our collection. If you haven’t already done so, the first step is to confirm that we do not have a copy of the book you need. You can do this using the online catalogue.
