Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery


Requesting Physical Items
Interlibrary Loan will only request a physical item if access to the electronic copy or e-version is not available.
Special HathiTrust Access
Many books and journal titles are available online during COVID-19 through HathiTrust. Search our catalog for access. This special access will end on July 1st.
Journal Article Access
Many journal articles are available online. Search our catalog for electronic resources.

Campus Delivery of interlibrary loan materials is not available during the Summer 2021 semester. However, we are temporarily offering Home Delivery of borrowed items. Please follow the instruction on the request forms carefully.

 Only items not found at the Marriott Library will be requested from another library through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). In most instances books are available within 1 to 2 weeks and electronic access to articles can be provided within 24-48 hours. However, we are currently experiencing significant delay due to the less availability of supplying libraries and the restrictions on in-library staffing in Marriott Library. Please plan ahead and request early.

Textbooks and course required materials are not available through Interlibrary Loan.

For step-by-step instructions of the 4 methods for submitting ILL requests, please refer to our How-To Guide page.

Document Delivery provides electronic access to journal articles and book chapters from the Marriott Library print collection. Delivery time will be approximately 24-48 hours.
