The Interlibrary Loan works with the Washington Research Libraries Consortium to provide materials to students, faculty, staff, and others that are unavailable at Bender Library. Requests for books and articles may be made online through WorldCat and ALADIN. Once the request is placed, it takes an average of 10 days to receive the materials. Undergraduate Students can check out materials for up to 4 weeks, graduate students for 6 weeks. To avoid overdue charges and place renewals, please contact ILL at 202-885-3282. Overdue items cannot be renewed. For more information on Interlibrary Loans visit http://www.library.american.edu/about/services/ill/ or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
