French Colonial Legacies: Interlibrary Loan and Other Library Services

Why Use Interlibrary Loan?

As you become engaged in your research, you may uncover books and articles not available at the Cheng Library. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) will borrow a book from another library anywhere in the world. Books can take time to come through the mail so plan ahead.

If the article you need is not full-text at the Cheng Library, ILL will obtain a copy from another institution and send the article to your WPUNJ email. This may take 24 hours or sometimes several days depending on availability.
