Using Interlibrary Loan

When to use ILL

You can request books or articles.  Books can take up to 2 weeks to receive and articles generally take between 1-2 days. 

When you request books, please check the Library Catalog before requesting through ILL.

When requesting articles, please check the Full Text Periodical List and search for the Journal, Magazine or Newspaper title to see if we have it in print or online in full text.
