The Interlibrary loan (ILL)is a cooperative service provided by libraries throughout the United States and is intended to be a supplement to, not a replacement for, the resources of our library.
One should thoroughly examine and use the materials available in Abell (The Reference librarians can offer advice for obtaining available resources from Abell's collection or from other libraries, and they also can help you to fill out the form necessary to place a borrowing request).
Allow five to ten days for requested material to arrive from the lending library (Though interlibrary loan is based upon cooperation between institutions, some do charge for loans or for photocopying. Abell Library will usually pay charges for student requests, but we may ask you to verify that you still need the material for a specific course project).
Books borrowed through ILL are held at the Circulation Desk, while photocopies are sent to you by campus mail.
