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

To request an item through ILL find the title in WorldCat Discovery, click the "Request Item Through Interlibrary Loan" button and complete the form. Request forms are also available at the Information Services desk and on the library website for items not found in the online catalog.

Delivery of ILL may take from one day to two weeks or more.
