Finding Research Instruments

Some Notes about ILL - most disciplines

This is my first ILL request.

When you login with your UMassD account, you'll need to fill out a registration form. You won't be asked to do this again.

How long will it take for my ILL to arrive?

ILL requests, especially for articles, often take less than 48 hours.

Some items can take longer (even up to 2 weeks), so for best results, request items as early as possible!

Help! I have more questions.

Just ask me, or any librarian at the reference desk!
