Books can take up to two weeks to arrive depending on where the item is coming from. Articles can usually be obtained in one to two business days. In rare cases copyright restrictions (i.e., libraries have to print and mail articles instead of using electronic methods) can delay the arrival of an article.
Patrons will be notified by email or phone when an item arrives. To check the status of a request contact interlibrary loan staff at the campus where the request was placed
No, textbooks cannot be borrowed from other libraries.
No. We request items from libraries that lend materials free of charge.
If the book is not currently overdue interlibrary loan staff will place a renewal request with the lending library. Interlibrary loan staff will notify patron with a new due date.
Overdue fines will be calculated by the library and will follow the same policy for non-ILL checkouts.. Items will be declared lost at ten days and a hold will be placed on the patron’s account.
Lost items fines will be calculated according to the Lending Library's records as the cost of the item plus $5 processing fee after 3 months overdue. At that time, it is non-refundable.
Fines can increase if/when the lending library sends a bill for unreturned or damaged items.
