About this Page

This page tells you how to request articles through a free document delivery service offered by our Interlibrary Loan department.  If you don't have enough information on your topic, or you just want advice on finding more information, please contact your subject librarian!

Article Request

To request an article, please fill out the article request form. When we receive the article, we will make it available in your Illiad account. The turnaround time is largely dependent upon the loaning institution.  While we can't tell you when you will receive the article, most requests are filled within a week.  

When filling out the article request form, be careful to complete the information accurately. If you need help reading your citation (e.g.,  identifying the journal title, volume number, etc.), please watch the Reading Citations tutorial or contact a librarian.

Book Requests

You can request books by filling out a book ILL request form. As with article requests, the turnaround time is largely dependent on the loaning institution.  That said, you can expect an average book request to take about a week.  

When your book arrives, you will receive an email notification.  You will pick up your books at the Circulation Desk, which is located on the library's first floor.
