Document Delivery Service

USEK library will continue processing Document Delivery service for articles and chapters. However, turnaround time for receiving requested items may be significantly delayed, and the fulfillment of interlibrary loan requests will be depending on our partner institutions.

During this pandemic period, physical interlibrary loan (print books) service is suspended until further notice. Please keep any interlibrary loan item you may have in your possession; no need to return this material to campus at this time.

All fees for overdue items will be waived for your interlibrary loan items.

To request an item through ILL/DDS, please check the Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Service Libguide.

Place Materials on Reserve

Place Materials on Reserve Service allows faculty members to set aside library print and non-print items and/or instructor copies of required materials for coursework.
