ILL: What’s the Story
* What is an Interlibrary Loan?
Also called an ILL, is a cooperaive service among regional and national libraries that allows Wingate students, faculty, and staff to acquire materials which are not available in the EKS Library collection.
*Where do I start?
For online forms, visit the EKS Library web site at http://library.wingate.edu/. Then go to Databases, select Inter-library Loan (ILL). One form is for book requests and one form is for article requests. Fill out the appropriate form completely and submit. Print forms are also available at the Library’s Circulation Desk.
*How long does it take to receive materials?
Allow at least two weeks before you actually need the ILL item.
*How will I know it is here?
You will be notified by email when the item has arrived. Retrieve your item(s) at the Library’s Circulation desk. For books, the DUE DATE will be clearly marked on the ILL label.
*How much does it cost?
Books are free. Articles are $.10 per page.
Please note: Faculty, staff and students will be assessed an overdue charge of $5 per item for books that are returned more than 30 days overdue and articles that are not picked up within 30 days of being notified to do so.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Williams, Library Access Services Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 8091.
