Types of Materials:
Every effort is made to fill ILL requests for most types of materials and with timely delivery. Please be advised there are no guarantees that all requests can be filled and delivered in a timely fashion. However, there are some items that should not be requested for loans through ILL:
Number of Requests:
Please contact the Interlibrary Loan Department if you no longer need an item.
Because we belong to several library consortiums, most requested items can be obtained at no cost. However, there are instances that a lending library will charge for loans of materials not readily available at other libraries. We make every attempt to get your requests at no cost, but requesting “free only” does limit obtaining requests for hard-to-find journal titles.
If you elect to proceed with an order requiring a cost to obtain, you are responsible for any charges, even if your material arrives after your deadline.
Length of Loan Periods:
Overdues & Fines:
It is essential to keep in good standing with lending institutions. This depends upon your prompt return of items we borrowed for you.
If items are not returned 7 days after the due date, borrowers will be billed a $15.00 overdue fee for each item (capped at $100.00), and lose ILL borrowing privileges until all materials are returned and the overdue fine is paid.
If items are not returned by the end of the semester, borrowers will be charged a replacement fee determined by the lending institution.
In addition to the replacement fee, borrowers will be charged a processing fee of $10.00 for each item. Once the replacement invoice is paid to the lending institution, the replacement fee is non-refundable.
A $2.00 fee will be charged for book returned without the book straps.
