Interlibrary Loan Electronic Delivery Information
Interlibrary Loan offers the convenient option of having articles delivered to you via the Web. Expect electronic articles to be available a few days sooner than a paper photocopy. Electronic delivery is available for most articles that are delivered to the Penrose Library.

How do I sign up for electronic delivery?

Everyone who registers for Interlibrary Loan is automatically signed up for electronic delivery.

What do I need on my computer to receive electronic articles?

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed and configured to work with your web browser in order to view, download, and print these articles. You can download Adobe Acrobat here or from the Interlibrary Loan Login Page.

How do I get my articles when they arrive?

Logon to Interlibrary Loan. On the main menu, click the ‘View/Download Electronically Received Articles’ button. This will give you a list of links to all of the electronic items that you have waiting to view or download.

How do I know which requests will be delivered electronically and which ones will not?

All articles will be delivered electronically, unless there is a problem with a specific item. In that case, the article will be mailed to your primary address.
