How long it takes to receive an item through Inter Library Loan, usually depends on the item itself that you are requesting as well as the library we are asking to borrow the item from. Usually however the process takes between 1-2 weeks. So if you have an assignment that needs a particular resource that you are using ILL for, please give yourself enough time to receive the item you requested.

However if you are requesting an electronic journal article, that process is much simpler and the scanned PDF file of that journal article will be emailed to you within 1-2 days.

For all ILL transactions, you will receive an email either stating that your materials are ready to be picked up at the Information Desk on the 1st floor of the library or the journal article you requested will available to be downloaded.
