Book ILL Request

Please provide as much detail as you know.  The required fields are the minimum information needed for the request to be placed.  Remember to plan ahead since requests usually take five to seven days to fill.  This time period will vary and there is no guarantee that the materials will arrive on or before a needed date.  Due dates for materials are established by the lending library.  No requests for textbooks will be accepted; they are not honored by lending libraries.  Staff, students and community patrons should submit requests through WorldCat whenever possible.  If you need assistance placing your request, contact the librarian on duty at the reference desk at (815) 921-4619.  Library website, Quarry and hardcopy forms are backup options as needed.  Patrons are limited to five active requests at any given time for items that are returnable.  Copies of articles are considered non-returnable.  For questions about the status of your request, call (815) 921-4607 or (815) 921-4614.
