Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery: Interlibrary Loan (materials not owned by Himmelfarb)

A guide to Interlibrary Loan and document delivery services at Himmelfarb.

Helpful Hints

  • Provide a complete citation, with the PubMed ID, if possible. 
  • Check the WRLC catalog first before requesting a book via ILL. 



Borrowing from Other Libraries

If the material you need is not available at Himmelfarb Library, and cannot be requested through CLS from any of the WRLC libraries, you're ready to try Interlibrary Loan. Most requests are delivered within 24-72 hours. You may designate your request as "Rush" or "Urgent Patient Care," with guaranteed 24-hour delivery. Such requests incur an extra $10 charge; please indicate in your requests if you require this level of service. 



Creating a New Request

First, make sure that the title is unavailable through either Gelman, or any WRLC library. Once you've determined this, click on the "Request Interlibrary Loan via Documents2Go" Button.
