The Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) enables a network of libraries to make or receive requests for documents, either reproductions or originals.

Through this service we can either:

  • Provide the HEC community with books, theses and copies of articles from other French or foreign libraries that are not available at the HEC Paris Learning Center.
  • Send documents from our collections to other libraries that request them.

Before applying, please check if the document is available in the Catalog Flora or in the Databases of the Learning Center.

Who is the ILL for?

This service is available free of charge within HEC for:

  • Professors
  • PhD Students
  • Students
  • All the Above at Universities of the Paris-Saclay Network
