Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery

COVID-19 and ILL

Please be aware that other universities and their libraries have limited their ILL operations due to the coronavirus. They have closed their buildings, reduced their on-site ILL staffing and closed off access to their physical collections until the pandemic eases. Requesting items through ILL may take longer to obtain or may be unavailable.

Picking Up ILL Materials

ILL books can be picked up at the Mcfarlin Library Desk in front of the café during regular library hours.

  • Book delivery is currently not being offered.
  • Remote learning students are encouraged to use their local libraries to obtain physical books. We will not send books through the mail to remote students, staff or faculty.

Returning ILL Materials

ILL materials may be returned through one of the library's two book drops: 


  1. The indoor book drop is located at the Mcfarlin Library Desk in front of the café.
    • Mcfarlin Library Desk Indoor Book Drop
  2. The outdoor book drop is located on the south side of the library, next to the plaza.
    • Outside the library book drop McFarlin book drop

If you're no longer affiliated with the university or are leaving town, return books to the book drop outside Mcfarlin library. If you are not returning to campus and have ILL books to return, please contact us at to discuss options.
