Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Services

Our interlibrary loan department delivers thousands of books and journal articles to patrons each year at no cost. Last year, our interlibrary loan staff borrowed over 6,000 items on behalf of our patrons and lent over 12,000 items from our collection to other libraries!

Services also include document delivery, we’ll locate items in our collection, such as journal articles or book chapters, and scan and deliver the content to you electronically. This is a popular service; our staff delivered over 5,000 items through document delivery last year.

All interlibrary loan and document delivery services are free to our students, faculty and staff.
