Delivery / Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan staff are still available to process your requests for materials. We are working to obtain electronically sourced articles, books and book chapters wherever possible. The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in reduced services from many partner institutions. This may result in longer delivery times and limited availability of requested items. Contact a Librarian for help with locating materials.
