Distance Learner Request
Distance learners may request items via the forms on our Interlibrary Loan page.
Users who are more than 50 miles away from a Mercer library may request that items be physically mailed to them.
Once we receive a request, the staff fills the order as quickly as possible. Turnaround time between processing requests and receipt of the material by the requestor is dependent upon several factors, most of which are outside the control of the library.
- Requests filled from the Mercer University Library (ATLANTA) collection will arrive first.
- Requests filled from other Mercer University Libraries’ collections will arrive next.
- Materials that need to be shipped from a lending library will take at least 10-14 working days to arrive–most items will arrive in this time frame, but some items will take longer.
