How long will ILL materials take to arrive? (Medical Library)

FAQs Answer

Because the material can come from any participating library, arrival times vary. Electronic articles have a turnaround time of a couple hours to 2 or more business days while hard material loans are 7 or more days. Hard to find material can take longer and some may not be obtainable at all. 

(Trick of the trade: if you do not have a set need by date, open your “not needed after” field to give the system more time to work on your request before being canceled when it reaches the auto-filled date without finding a lender.)
