Hardcopy of ILL materials (books, DVDs, CDs):

The wait time for delivery of physical items can be 1-2 weeks, you will receive email notification when your item has arrived with information on where to pick it up. 

Electronic Documents (articles):

Article requests can take up to 5 days to be filled, but it can take longer for difficult to find items. Staff will send you a PDF of the article through your SRC student email account. You will need to have a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader installed on your device in order to open and read the document.
