Clark University is part of OCLC, an information-sharing network of libraries. Interlibrary Loan is a cooperative borrowing and lending service among these libraries.
The Interlibrary Loan service is available to all current Clark University students, faculty, and staff.
Generally there is no direct cost to you.
The average time is five(5) business days for articles and up to two(2) weeks for books. Some requests have been known to take longer. Service is interrupted for weekends, breaks, and holidays. Effective use of Interlibrary Loan requires planning ahead.
For books, you will be notified by email when they arrive. Pick them up at the Reference desk.
Articles (photocopies) that the Interlibrary Loan Department receives in electronic format will be sent to your email (which you provide on the Interlibrary Loan Form).
We will try to obtain almost anything on ILL but the following items are difficult to obtain.
Yes. Renewal requests must be made at least two business days before the due date. The lending library decides whether or not to renew the material and for how long. Contact the ILL staff through the Clark University ILL System to place a renewal request. You will be notified by email regarding the status of the Renewal Request.
Materials should be returned to the Reference desk where you picked them up.
