In order to broaden the book resources for our faculty and students and facilitate the circulation of the materials, the NTNU library cooperates with other domestic libraries and provided the NTNU faculty, staff, and students with Interlibrary Loan Cards (ILL cards) to borrow books from the cooperating libraries. The patron who has applied for the ILL card can visit the cooperating library to borrow books/items. All the NTNU current faculty, staff, and enrolled students are welcome to make use of these services.

The Institute of Chinese Literature and Philosophy of Academia Sinica is closed for library renovation from March 11 to July 14, 2024. The interlibrary loan card will be suspended in this period accordingly. For more information, please refer to the official website: Academia Sinica Library
