Articles usually arrive within 5-7 days, books within 7-14 days.  We will notify you by email when your ILL item has arrived, and you can pick up all items at the library Circulation Desk.


There is usually no charge for the ILL service; however, some libraries may charge a fee before they will lend certain items.  We will notify you in advance if there will be a fee associated with your ILL request.
