The Interlibrary Loan Department supports your research by borrowing materials which are not available in the CTW consortium libraries. Generally this service is limited to books, theses and dissertations, photocopies of articles, and microfilms. Most items can be obtained in less than two weeks. For information on how to place an ILL request, see Search and borrow from other libraries.

There is often confusion between CTW borrowing and ILL borrowing.  For a brief description of the difference, see CTW vs. ILL.
