The acronym ILL stands for Interlibrary Loan. The ILL program allows students, faculty and staff to request materials from other external libraries such as books, reports, theses, and journal articles to be sent to Seneca Libraries for them to borrow for personal research.
Requests may be submitted by filling out an Interlibrary Loan form. Each item must be requested using a separate form.
It usually takes between 3-15 days for a requested item to arrive, and some obscure items may take longer. There is often a cost involved, but the library will always seek out freely available matierial (the library will never request an item that comes at a cost without the requestor's approval). When the item arrives, the borrower will be notified by phone or e-mail.
