Need a document that you cannot find in the CY libraries ?

Inter-library service is available to all members of CY University, as well as to non-University members. This service seeks to provide access to documents not available at the University .The CY Libraries also supply their own documents to other libraries and institutions.
The SUDOC ("Système Universitaire de Documentation” catalogue) can be used to locate the desired items in the library collections of French universities and other institutions of higher education.
Please check  Summon CY MegaSearch tool, before making a request.
You can make a request at the library's information desks, or online via the request form.

The average time to obtain a document is one week.
The library that provides the document decides on the duration of the loan and the conditions for consultation: consultation in our premises or the possibility of borrowing the document. Parisian libraries do not lend their documents to libraries in Ile de France.
The document must be collected from the lending library mentioned during the request.

This service is free.
You have a question ?


If the document is available in one of our CY libraries, you can request a CY Inter-site loan at the reception desk of the library where you wish to collect the document.
Do not request Sudoc Inter-library loan in this case.
