Tips For Fast Service:

  • Provide full citations in the request (title, author, date, publisher, etc.)
  • Check spelling. Our searching program does not detect errors
  • Provide ISBN or ISSN numbers. This will ensure the correct item is ordered
  • Material written in a foreign language will be canceled unless you specify in the request your fluency
  • Try to limit the number of requests sent per day. We fill them in the order they are received.
  • Check our catalog, periodical list, and UW Resource Sharing before placing Interlibrary Loan requests. We screen every requests that comes in, and this will save us time


There is no charge for placing Interlibrary Loan requests, however we may enforce a $1.00/day in overdue fees. Requested material not picked up at the Circulation Desk may incur a $5.00 charge. Many libraries charge the McIntyre Library to borrow their materials, and we want to make sure the items are needed. Items returned without the bookband may also incur a $5.00 charge.
