Library Resource Center: Interlibrary Loan

Learn more about interlibrary loan from the Library Resource Center.

To obtain library material not available from the Library Resource Center or our online databases, please request an "interlibrary loan." Interlibrary loan is the process of borrowing and lending of materials between libraries. This includes books, articles, DVDs and audiobooks. Hard copies of books generally take one to two weeks to arrive. Electronic articles generally take one to three days to receive. Electronic articles are sent via email and can be kept. Materials may arrive quicker or slower depending on the lending library and a number of other factors. Our interlibrary loan service is free to currently registered students, staff, and faculty. To request an interlibrary loan, please contact a library staff member at a campus library.
