Document Delivery

Document Delivery vs. ILL - What is the difference?

  • Document delivery is for requesting scans from print materials in the McFarlin collection.
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is for requesting materials from other libraries.
  • Both requests are made through your ILL account.

Who can use document delivery?

  • Current TU faculty, staff and students may request scans of articles and book chapters from the McFarlin library's print collection, microfiche and microfilm.
    • These requests must not exceed copyright.
    • Requests may take up to 48 hours to fill depending on how busy the ILL office is.
    • Patrons placing more than 5 document delivery requests at a time should be aware that all requests may not be filled on the same day.

Note: Materials from Special Collections, the Mabee Legal Information Center (MLIC), Gilcrease and the University School are not available through document delivery.
