I just had a quick question I meant to ask when I was at the library earlier but didn't get a chance to.
I just requested interlibrary loans for a few sources I need for a research project. I was wondering if someone could give me a ballpark figure of how long it tends to take interlibrary loans to arrive and how I would be notified. Would I just get an email or something? I was assuming that would be the case but better safe than sorry right?
You will receive an email when your interlibrary loan arrives. If it is an article, it will be available online in your interlibrary loan account - just login into that via the library webpage and the article will appear under "view and download electronically received articles". If it is a book, the email will notify you that it will be held at the library circulation desk. Books take 1-5 days or so , depending on who has it to loan. Articles take 1-3 days. If you do not hear back in 3 days, just notify us and we can look into it.
If this information does not answer your question, please stop by the reference desk or contact us:
