Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan is a department that obtains material not found in our collection for our library users. Anyone eligible to borrow circulating material is also eligible to receive interlibrary loan service. Patrons must first set up an account.

Patrons should search the Library catalog to determine that the book or journal needed is not available in our collection.

* Requests are processed within 24 hours of receipt of request.
* A fax request is filled within 24 hours.
* On average, it takes 3-7 days for a request to be filled locally.
* For material that must be obtained from outside the New York metropolitan
   area, or for difficult to obtain materials, requests may take longer.
