Please note, however, that COVID-19 has caused many libraries to temporarily close and, while Logan Library is still open, not all libraries are. Consequently, sometimes there are fewer lenders available, especially if the item being requested is rare. Nevertheless, we are doing our best to fulfill all requests and will keep you informed if we run into problems.
AVERAGE TIME TO FILL A REQUEST
Interlibrary loan services are provided free of charge to all authorized borrowers. Special circumstances exist, though, such as borrowing costs charged by the lending institution, or copyright clearance fees. You can indicate how much you are willing to pay on your request form, and we will work within your limitations. If there are additional charges, or the item costs more than what you indicated, ILL staff will contact you before submitting your ILL request, to confirm that you are willing to pay these extra costs.
ILL borrowers who are late returning their ILL materials are assessed a fine in the amount of $.25 day per overdue item.
The borrower assumes all financial responsibility for ILL materials. If the materials are lost or damaged while in the borrower's possession, he/she/they must pay in full for any repair, replacement, or processing fees which the lending library charges. The library may place a hold on the borrower's account while payment is arranged.
