About Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
(local NSU patrons and registered Broward Cty. patrons only)*
services for distance and local
HPD patrons are provided by their school libraries.
Local NSU students, faculty, staff, as well as public patrons that have an NSU library card are eligible to request books and journal articles that are not available at NSU. The Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center uses Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to borrow materials from other libraries whenever possible. Because of the time required for processing and delivery from the lending library, it can take as little as three days to as much as two weeks or longer to obtain some materials, depending on the availability or type of material requested. Due to these factors, you should begin your research as soon as possible to allow for any unexpected delays. NSU Libraries abide by the 1976 U.S. Copyright Law, which governs the borrowing and use of photocopies and other reproductions of copyrighted materials.
