Turnaround timeAn Interlibrary Loan request form can be obtained at the Library with our Librarian, Jessica. It is the student’s responsibility to plan ahead and allow at least two weeks for an Interlibrary Loan request to be processed. Patrons are limited to two requests at one time. Most materials arrive within one to two weeks, but could take longer depending on the location of the lending library. We cannot guarantee the arrival date of any item and suggest that you place your requests well ahead of any deadlines. In most cases, you will not be able to keep the book for the whole quarter. Due dates are set by the lending library, not by Stanton University. Loan periods are usually between three and six weeks. However, we will do our best to locate a lending library that offers longer lending periods. Furthermore, ILL books are subject to immediate recall, so you could have to give the book back at any time.
Costs• Be sure to sign the request form and indicate the maximum amount you would be willing to pay to obtain the loaned material. The Stanton University Library does not charge our patrons for this service; however, other lending libraries may charge. Every attempt will be made to obtain the material free of charge. Please note that this does NOT include shipping charges, which will be the student’s responsibly. • Stanton University students, staff, and faculty are responsible for overdue and/or lost ILL material charges; said charges will be attached to the patron’s school record.• Failure to pick up any ILL materials will be result in a $5.00 per item fee which will be attached to the requestor's library record.
The following items cannot be ordered through ILL:• Books owned by Stanton University unless material is missing and/or lost.• An entire issue of a periodical, magazine, or newspaper.• Audio or video materials.
