University of Delaware faculty, staff, and students with a valid ID card are eligible to use Interlibrary Loan.
Average delivery time for articles is 1-2 business days and for books, DVDs, and other loans is 7-10 business days.
1. Log in to the Interlibrary Loan system to place requests.
2. Fill out a request form for each book, journal article, or other item being requested. Provide as much information as possible on each request. Complete citations will speed up request processing time considerably.
