Loan Periods: The lending library determines the loan period and renewal policy for its materials. In most cases borrowers, including faculty, can expect to keep interlibrary loan items for upto four weeks.
Exception: materials from the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) are loaned for six months, subject to recall.
For most users, the pickup location for borrowed items and paper copies from ILL is the Library Service Desk on level 2 of Woodruff Library.* Since the Library Service Desk maintains several types of items for pickup, please be sure to specify "interlibrary loan" when asking for these materials.
Health Sciences users will pick up items at the Information Desk, located near the entrance of the Health Sciences Center Library. Please specify "interlibrary loan" when picking up these materials.
Most ILL articles are delivered electronically in PDF format. You will be notified via e-mail when requested documents are available for viewing. Instructions on how to access the article are included in the email notice.
