Interlibrary Loan is a service that allows Mercer University Libraries patrons to borrow books or articles from other libraries around the world at no cost. Items are delivered in either electronic format via Mercer email or in physical format via USPS. As such, it can take up to three days for an article to arrive and a week for a physical item to arrive, so please place your requests accordingly. If you need material in the next 48 hours please contact the reference desk
