Use Interlibrary Loan

We welcome your requests for interlibrary loans. If you'd like to request an article or book that the Library does not own, you'll find ILL forms in the Library. If you are a student and plan to use the book or article for your papers, please request items in the beginning stages of your research. In most cases, ILL requests are delivered within one or two weeks if they are not available for electronic delivery.

If you are uncertain as to whether or not CW owns an article or book you need, please ask a librarian for assistance.
