FAQs

How do I place a ILL request?

Use one of the form links above to request a book or article not available at Jenks Library. We will send out a loan request to other libraries to try to get you the book or article you need. You will receive an email when your ILL request is available.

Who can use ILL?

Interlibrary loans are available to current Gordon students, faculty, and staff. Please note, students with overdue items or unpaid fines over $10.00 will not be able to pick up their ILL material.

How long does it take for my ILL requests to arrive?

This depends on the availability of a lender and the request type. You can expect the following timeline for each type of request: 

  • Articles: 1-5 days (often comes within the first day or two).
  • Books: 3 days and up to two weeks (we're dependent on other library's processing abilities and the USPS for book requests, so please plan accordingly when requesting books. Sometimes it can take a while!). 

How many ILL requests can I have at one time?

Students may have no more than 10 active ILL requests at one time. Once a book is returned or an article is received it is no longer considered active.
