Q. How long does it take to get Interlibrary Loan materials?
On average it takes 7-10 business days to borrow an Interlibrary Loan item. The actual time can vary from several days to a month or longer, depending on a number of factors including the location of the lending library, shipping method, and processing required. Popular or rare items can take significantly longer to borrow as they may not be checked in at the libraries who own them.
