The Inter-Library Loan service is typically free; as the service leverages member institutions that do not charge a fee for circulating their materials.  However, there are some institutions that assess a fee for lending materials.

If the requested material is a photocopied reproduction of an original work, it may be kept indefinitely. If the requested material is not a photocopy, the lending time-frame is determined by the lending institution.

Library Staff will notify a patron of when items ordered through the ILL service have arrived, these items can be retrieved from the circulation desk in the Library.

Requests can be made for journal articles, books, dissertations, and various other types of research materials subject to availability not currently in the local Page Library collection. However, most partner institutions do not lend audio or video materials.

If material ordered through the ILL service is lost, damaged and or destroyed a fee will be assessed.  The fee imposed is established by the lending institution.  The fee will be placed on your record and lending privileges at The Inman E. Page Library will be suspended until the fine is paid.
