An interlibrary loan request enables CNU students, staff and faculty to access articles unavailable within the CNU databases. Here is how the process works:
This process takes up to three days. Occasionally, there will be a request for a text that cannot be found through the interlibrary loan system, and in this case the CNU library will work to purchase the text. The purchasing process is different and separate from the interlibrary loan process. Purchasing a text can take up to one month.
You will receive updates from the library about the status of your ILL request and are welcome to ask any additional questions.
We want to make sure you get access to your materials as soon as possible. Good searching techniques can help you avoid unnecessary waiting periods.
