Scarborough Library will begin to process Interlibrary Loan requests for items that need to be shipped physically from other libraries. Because of widespread library closures, loans may be available on a limited basis and processing times may be delayed. Thank you for your patience as we resume ILL services.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service through which Shepherd University students, faculty, staff, and Scarborough Society members may request books, articles, and audio/visual materials not available in Scarborough Library.
If you have any questions about Interlibrary Loans, contact:
Coordinator of Interlibrary Loan
Scarborough Library Room 205
Request Books or Multimedia
Please allow 7-14 days for shipping. Patrons are notified when requested items are available to be picked up. Interlibrary loan items will be held at the Public Services desk for 14 days or until the due date – whichever comes first.
Request Journal Articles
- Through a database search — click on the “Request this item through interlibrary loan” link
- Completing an online Article Request Form
Journal articles are usually delivered electronically through the patron’s email account designated on the request form within a week of the request. Please check your email regularly (including your ‘junk’ mail).
If the journal article does not arrive within 7 days, please contact Patrick Weber, Coordinator of Interlibrary Loan .
Please see the Interlibrary Loan Policy for further information.
