Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service which makes it possible for materials not available in the Cressman Library to be borrowed from other libraries.

All Cedar Crest students, faculty, alumnae, and staff may use ILL.

To request material through ILL complete an ILL request form. Request forms are available at the Information Services desk, or via the Web. There are two different types of forms, which correspond to specific types of material.

Delivery of ILL materials generally takes one to two weeks. Materials borrowed from Lehigh Valley libraries may arrive within 3 to 5 days. Delivery time of materials borrowed from out-of-state libraries may extend beyond 2 weeks.

For more information on Interlibrary Loan, please visit the library website here.
