How long will Interlibrary Loan take?
Unfortunately, we cannot tell you ahead of time when your material will be available. Items arrive at different times from different libraries, and in many cases more than one library must be tried before the request is filled.
Libraries are chosen, and your request is sent out typically within one business day. It could take a bit longer during peak times of the semester.
Once your request has been sent, it usually takes one or two days for photocopied articles to start arriving. Many are delivered online, and they are forwarded directly into your ILLiad account.
Books take at least one week before they start to come in. These arrive in the mail or other delivery system.
