Question and Answer
How do I get an article or book that the library doesn't have and how long does it take?
Through our interlibrary loan service, you can request materials and we'll find a library to share them with us.
How long requests take depend on the availability of the requested item, but the average delivery time for a loan request (e.g. books, media, microforms) to be filled is 5-7 days. The average time for a document request (e.g. journal article, book chapter, conference paper) to be filled is 2-3 days.
If you think we should own an item, you may want to suggest a purchase.
