Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery FAQ

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service free to the user through which you can request research materials, such as books, journal articles, book chapters, videos, and other materials that are not available in the Arnold Library.

What is Document Delivery?

If you need assistance accessing items in our collection, Arnold Library staff will scan and email articles to you or we can mail books and DVDs to you via interoffice mail.

What happens after I make a request?

After you make a request, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) staff will act on it by searching for other libraries that will loan or copy the desired material. Once the material arrives, you will be notified via email that your request is ready for retrieval. 

  • Journal article or book chapters will be uploaded to your ILLiad account for you to download
  • Loans (physical items) will be sent to your mailstop or held for you in the Library

Who may use Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary Loan is available to our faculty, staff, affiliates, students and patients.

How much does Interlibrary Loan cost?

There is no charge to Fred Hutch faculty and staff for interlibrary loan and document delivery requests.

How long does it take to receive an Interlibrary Loan request?

We process ILL requests each morning. Journal articles, media and books not in our collection will be located through the National Network of Libraries of Medicine or the OCLC international library resource sharing system and obtained on your behalf. Journal article requests are usually available in 1-3 business days. Books or physical material requests will be mailed by the lending library, so can typically take about 2 weeks to arrive.

Articles which are difficult to locate or incompletely referenced may take longer or be returned to you for additional information.
