Borrowing Services: Requesting - UW

Guide to Borrowing from the UWB/CC Campus Library

Quick Links

Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery

Most interlibrary loan and document delivery services are free to UW students, staff and faculty. Alumni, Cascadia College borrowers, and non-UW clients are provided ILL on a cost-recovery basis.  Check the Interlibrary Loan website for more information. Most articles can be downloaded in 24 hours to 4 days. Delivery time for physical materials varies widely based where the lending library is located. 

Requesting From Other UW Libraries (UW & Cascadia Borrowers)

UW and Cascadia College borrowers can use UW Libraries Search to request materials from other UW Libraries to be placed on hold and picked up at the Bothell/CC Campus Library. If listed as available, these items usually take about 2-4 days to arrive, weekday delivery only. Note: you must be logged in with your UW NetID to see the Request link.
