Borrowing from other libraries (Interlibrary Loan)

Library of the Health Sciences

Typical Time Between Order and Delivery

• Turnaround on requests varies.

• Please allow 3-5 days minimum.¹

Reasons for Delivery Delay

• Rare Journal - few libraries subscribe, so hard to find a lender.

Few / No Free Lenders - we always try to request from free lenders first.

Processing Challenges - high volume lenders may require more time to fill because of the heavy volume of requests.


¹ This is typical turnaround on journal article requests. Physical items require more processing and shipment. Please allow 7-10 business days for receipt of physical items.
