ILL FAQs• How do I request an article? – An article is called a photocopy (because it will be copied from a journal).• How will I get it? – You’ll be emailed when your request arrives. Articles are usually photocopied and sent electronically as PDFs, and available in your ILL account. Books will be at the circulation desk.• How long will it take? – We participate in a big network of libraries and we can often obtain items pretty quickly. – Sometimes within a few days for articles, within a week for books. – But unusual items can take a lot longer so leave yourself plenty of time, particularly for big projects.
