Interlibrary Loans Policy Changes

Interlibrary Loans Policy Changes

Posted August 4, 2011

Starting September 1, 2011, the following Interlibrary Loan (ILL) policy changes below are in effect.
The Library has instituted these policies in an effort to balance our consortium responsibilities with our clients’ needs.

  • Interlibrary Loan Grace Period is 2 (two) days (reduced from 4 days) for all ILL material except Media. The ILL media policy remains unchanged with no grace period.
  • ILL Recalled Items Due in 5 (five) days (increased from due immediately) in cases where the lending library recalls the material at any time, resulting in the original due date being reduced. Previously, recalled material was due immediately and this did not provide sufficient time for return of items.
