This page is devoted to explaining the ways that you can get access to library materials - books, articles, media, and more - when Westminster does not have them. We have several services to help you with this.
Q: How do I get access to material that the Library does not have?
When using ILL, please keep in mind the time frame- printed, physical material typically takes 1-2 weeks to come in and they will be held behind the desk. Due dates are typically set by the lending library, and late fees can add up quickly, so let us know if you’ll need more time.
Articles and electronic materials usually take 3-5 business days and they are delivered electronically, sign back into your ILL account to view/download the pdf. Article PDFs are available for 30 days, so please be sure to download and save it.
If we don't have it, but another library does, we can usually get it through ILL for you (depending on copyright/their policies)!
Please see the attached instructions for how to use Get It Now and a list of available titles. If you have any questions, requests, or difficulties, please contact John Garrison.
