Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service for WCU students, faculty, and staff that gets you a book, article, or other material not available at West Chester University Libraries. We work with libraries around the world to get you this material.
|If you need a:||Please use:|
|Book||E-ZBorrow, then ILLiad (check E-ZBorrow first. If item is not available, use Illiad)|
|Article, thesis, microfilm/microfiche||ILLiad|
|Book chapter||ILLiad, please include both the book title and either the chapter title or page numbers of the chapter. Please submit one chapter at a time.|
In general, we can't get you:
You will receive an email letting you know when your material is ready. Articles, book chapters, and other shorter material are usually delivered online. You will pick up books at the Circulation desk on the 2nd floor of FHG Library.
WCU Libraries does not charge any fines for ILL books. However, the university that owns the book you borrowed may charge you a fine.
We won’t charge you for it, but the university that owns it will charge a replacement fee. You may be able to buy a replacement copy instead, but the lending university must approve it. Since it’s so variable, please give us a call or send us an email to discuss what you can do at this point.
