Q. How long does it take for interlibrary loans to arrive?


For loans, between five and ten working days, if the material is coming from a Canadian library. It could take up to six weeks to arrive from U.S. or international libraries. For copies, it usually takes only a few days. If your item does not include an ISBN or ISSN, it will always take longer. If this information is available, please make sure to include it to speed up delivery! Please indicate an "Item Not Needed After" date that will help staff gauge how widely they should search. For example, if your "Item Not Needed After" date is only two weeks away, staff will probably not search overseas.
