Interlibrary Loan Services

We have migrated to the new ILLiad Interlibrary Loan System. ILLiad replaces previous workflows, allowing us to manage requests and automate routine functions for borrowing and lending. ILLiad will have many enhanced features, while providing a faster turn-around time on requests.

Our interlibrary loan team fills requests to access print and electronic content regularly; this service is available at no cost to faculty, staff, and students. Requests for articles or chapters from books will be delivered electronically, with an average turnaround time of 2 business days. On average, it takes 6 business days for print content requested to arrive at one of our libraries. 

The loan period for items we borrow from other libraries varies by institution, with the average loan period being 4-6 weeks. Most items can be renewed upon request, users will submit the renewal request within their ILLiad account.

Watch this page for new information, guides, and tutorials for using ILLiad.
