When you can’t find the resources you need on campus, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) can bring the resources to you. Borrow articles, books, and other research materials which we do not have at Northwestern from other libraries.
If something is unavailable from CLICsearch, place a request using ILLiad and we'll do our best to find it from another source. While there are a variety of materials that you may want to request, no lending library is under any obligation to fulfill the loan.
Delivery time of materials from non-CLIC providers can vary greatly depending on the material type: articles deliver can take a few hours or a few days while physical items require shipping time and can take 3-14 days.
Also - physical items often have shorter loan periods, sometimes only a few weeks.
Once you've place a request using ILLiad here's what you can expect:
Articles: All articles are delivered electronically. They will be delivered to the ILLiad website for you to access. You will be notified via the email address listed in your account that the article has been delivered.
Books: Books are handled a few ways depending on your user status.
Faculty: can choose to pickup their items at the circulation desk or have them delivered to their campus mailbox.
Undergrad Students: students can pick up their requested items at the circulation desk.
Distance Students: can choose to pickup their items at the circulation desk or have them mailed to their home.
