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. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in the closures of many partner institutions, and we have suspended ILL of physical items. Contact a Librarian for help with locating materials.

We are in the process of extending due dates for items borrowed through Interlibrary Loan to August 25, 2020.
