Things to do before placing an interlibrary loan request:
Once you have confirmed that the item is not in our collection, log in to ILLiad and place your request.
Limits on Interlibrary Loan or Document Delivery requests
The number of active interlibrary loan requests will depend on patron status. ILL requests in excess of the stated limit will not be filled until borrowed material is returned. Please plan accordingly.
Please speak to Interlibrary Loan department staff if you require special consideration regarding these limits.
Patrons are asked to submit no more than 10 ILL requests a day.
How long does it take to get material through Interlibrary Loan?
Many requests that can be delivered electronically are usually available within 24-48 hours.
Print resources and physical media can take longer and are, on average, available within 8-10 business days.
