Interlibrary Loan @ USEK Library

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.

Get Started!

Our Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery Service (ILL/DDS) can assist you in obtaining materials not available in the University’s library collections. These include books, e-book chapters, journal and e-journal articles, as well as conference papers and bound periodicals amongst others.
