ILL handles requests for:

Please check in-house resources (MERLIN/MOBIUS/Prospector catalogs & electronic subscriptions and databases) before requesting materials via ILL, and limit requests to ten or fewer per week so we can process all requests in a timely manner.

NOTE: Articles typically take 5-7 days (sometimes less). Books take approximately 2 weeks due to shipping and processing. If you choose to enter a "Need By" date, please understand that the system automatically cancels and deletes your request as that date passes. Most people should not use that option.
