Q. How long does it take to receive items through interlibrary loan?
Book loans from other libraries can take up to a week or more, depending on the availability of the libraries we request the book from. If you need the book sooner, you can request a rush (additional $5, students included).
The average turnaround time for the library to receive a copy of an article from another library is 2 business days. There will be instances that this period could be longer.
If you request a scan of an article or book chapter from the library's print collection, you will receive that item the same or next business day.
