Interlibrary Loan (ILL) & Document Delivery

How to Request Items through Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery

  1. Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery services are available only for WTS faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students.

  2. Until further notice, all requests are limited to articles, chapters in books, essays, and reviews. Requests for physical books cannot be processed at this time.

  3. Please search the Wesley Library catalog and/or electronic resources first. The Library does not process ILL requests for items already in the collection. If you are requesting an item after using the Wesley Discovery Service, please check our local resources first — items often appear in multiple records. (If you need assistance searching the catalog, please contact the Library.)

  4. Due to COVID-19, ILL requests may take longer to process. Response and delivery times are subject to the operations of other libraries.

  5. Please limit your ILL requests to five per day.

  6. All fulfilled requests will be delivered via email.
