How long does it take to receive an article or book through Interlibrary Loan?
Most articles can be obtained electronically from another Ohio college or university via a file-sharing system called Odyssey. You should expect to receive a PDF attachment, or download link, by email within four work days. If the article is not available from an Ohio college or university, Ritter Library will receive a printed copy from an out-of-state library by US Postal Service within 10-14 days.
A book not available through OhioLINK loan can be obtained from non-OhioLINK libraries via interlibrary loan. Ritter Library will receive the book by US Postal Service within 10-14 days.
