Interlibrary loan is provided at no cost to our students, faculty, and staff. The cost of interlibrary loan to the University ranges from $15-$35 per item (journal article, book chapter, etc.). Due to this, the collections team looks at journals with a cost per use above $30 to determine if interlibrary loan is an alternative. Most requests for journal articles through interlibrary loan are filled within 2 business days.
