How long will it take for me to receive my Interlibrary Loan?

  • Photocopy requests may take from 2 days to 2 weeks to arrive depending upon which library or document delivery service can supply the item and how it will be delivered (electronically or physically).
  • Book requests average between 1 to 3 weeks to arrive, depending on the source of the material.
  • Audio/Visual (A/V) materials usually take longer to obtain. Many libraries will not lend their A/V materials through the ILL system, so finding a source usually takes a little longer than for book requests. If you need A/V material rushed, you may want to consider finding another source other than ILL for your material, such as purchasing the item yourself or renting from a local video store.
