Intrasystem v. Interlibrary

At UH West O‘ahu, an intrasystem loan is the borrowing of a book from another UH campus, or getting a copy of an article in UH Mānoa's journal collection. These requests may be submitted by the patron through the Voyager catalog.

An interlibrary loan is borrowing of an article from outside the UH system. These requests are mediated by the interlibrary loan Librarian.
