    HOW DO I GET STARTED?

    ILL request forms are available at the Reference and Circulation desks and staff can help you complete these forms.  Please include as much information as possible on the form (Title, Author, ISBN, name of journal, issue and volume number, etc.) to facilitate processing.

    WHEN WILL I GET THE BOOK OR ARTICLE?

    Allow at least 7-14 days for receipt of books.  Journal articles--which are sometimes sent to us by email or FAX--can arrive sooner.  Once an item is received, you will be notified by telephone or email. The lending library sets the length of time materials may be kept (generally two to four weeks) and whether or not the item can be renewed.
