As you conduct your research, you may come across articles that are not available online, but are owned by the library in another format (print, fiche, film).
Use the Article Request Form to have us scan and email these articles to your University email, usually within 48 hours!
The Reference Desk is staffed until 10PM Sunday-Friday and until 5:00pm on Saturday.
Send your question to the Reference Desk via email - firstname.lastname@example.org Allow 24 hours for a response.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service provided by the library, where we obtain, whenever possible, materials not available in our collection, for educational and research purposes.
There will be a link to the Interlibrary Loan form for any article that is NOT available from a Cheng Library database. You do need to login with your WP username and your 855 number as your password. Article requests will generally be available in the portal within 24-48 hours. Book requests take longer 3-10 days and you will need to pick up the book at Cheng Library.
The new portal also allows you to check the status of your requests. For additional information, please watch the tutorial or visit the Interlibrary Loan Services page.
The Cheng Library has made arrangements with other libraries in NJ, that allow you to borrow materials directly from those institutions.
