Interlibrary Loan

When you need a book or an article that Chambers Library doesn't own, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) can usually borrow it for you from another library. It's almost always a free service to you!

Allow 7-10 days for ILL items to arrive. Some electronic materials may arrive much quicker.

Request Interlibrary Loan

Library Express is an ILL service that allows faculty, staff, and distance students to request delivery of ILL or library-owned items. Physical items will be delivered to faculty/staff offices and mailed to E-Learner home addresses. To request Library Express services, login to ILL and choose "Bring/deliver library-owned books, etc. to me" in the menu.

Article Delivery is a service in which anyone can request library-owned articles to be scanned and delivered electronically. To request Article Delivery services, login to ILL and choose "E-deliver library-owned articles" in the menu.

You may keep printouts of electronic articles, but books must be returned promptly on the due date. All patrons will be charged $1.00 per day with a maximum of $30.00 fine for each overdue ILL book. Some ILL lenders allow renewals of books. You may renew them online through your ILL account.
