NOTE: Few libraries will send out videos or DVDs on interlibrary loan.
It may take from eight days to three weeks to receive ILL materials, depending on location and availability. Materials are borrowed from the closest lending library whenever possible. We cannot predict if requests will be received within a specified time period. We encourage you to submit ILL requests well in advance of your project/paper deadline.
The library borrows for free when possible. If the lending library charges a fee, Good Library will pay the first $15. We ask on the form that you let us know if you are willing to pay any amount above this if there is a fee.
Once a book is received, ILL will notify you by email or phone. Books may be picked up at the circulation desk during library hours. Print articles will be sent via campus mail. Electronic copies of requested articles will be emailed as attachments to the email address you provide on the form.
The lending library specifies the length of time books may be kept (usually two to four weeks). Renewals should be requested at least three days prior to the due date. Some libraries may not grant renewals, so please plan to pick up and use ILL materials promptly. A fine of $0.25 per day per item is assessed for overdue interlibrary loan materials.
