What is Interlibrary Loan?

How does it work?

Students, staff and faculty of Queens University of Charlotte may request scholarly material (articles and print books) not available in library collections utilizing the Interlibrary Loan Cooperative Program. Everett Library also loans collection materials to participating institutions on a quid pro quo reciprocal basis. In general, only items from the circulating collection are available for interlibrary loan. Reference, media, special collections/archives, and any circulated items deemed too fragile for transport are not available for loan.

Average Turnaround Time:

Article Requests / 5-7 business days / Delivered via email in most circumstances

Book Requests / 10-15 business days / Delivered via US Post


Every effort will be made to honor interlibrary loan requests at no charge to the patron. However, if a request is not complimentary, the patron has the option to pay the compulsory fees charged by the lending institution. All patrons will be advised prior to request submittal.
