Interlibrary Loan services are restricted to current students, faculty, and staff only. 

Please check our online catalog and/or our journal locator to make sure that the item that you need is not already in our library. 

Allow at least two weeks for materials to be received.  If photocopies are requested and received within two weeks, you are responsible for the cost of those materials even if they have been received after they are of no use to you.  The charge for photocopies is .10 per page unless you have been notified that the charge will be more.  There is no charge for books.  Arrival notification will be through e-mail.
