InterLibrary Loan

Since it is impossible for the library to subscribe to every publication, you will, from time to time, come across an article that is not available from the Cheng Library. When you check for full text and you encountered a screen that indicates "Sorry, no holdings were found for this journal" you may request a copy of the article using our InterLibrary Loan service. Complete and submit the form and the Cheng Library will obtain a copy of the article from another library and email it to your WPUNJ email account. Please allow one week for delivery.

If you are requesting a book that is not available from the Cheng Library, you may complete the book request form. Please allow at least two weeks for delivery. You must come to the Library to pick it up and return it.
