Hello. Interlibrary loan is free for all users who have ILL borrowing privileges. If you don't know if you have ILL or other borrowing privileges, please check here.
Most books requested through ILL arrive within 10-12 days. Loan periods vary depending on the lending library, but they typically last 3-6 weeks. If you need a book longer than that, add a note to your request; ILL staff will seek a library that gives longer loans (perhaps 3-4 months).
