ILL is Free, Quick, and Easy
ILL requests may be submitted by any current student, faculty, or staff member. Guest patrons, secondary card holders, students auditing a class, and people not affiliated with UMW are not eligible for this service. Most ILL requests take 1 – 2 weeks to be processed and received, although some requests may take longer.
Document Delivery is a service that allows faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students to request materials owned by UMW Libraries. Students at the Stafford campus may request items held by Simpson Library, and students on the Fredericksburg campus may request items held by the Stafford Campus Library. Faculty and staff may request items from either Library. Requests are submitted electronically through our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system. Items will be available within three days of the request, and you will be notified via an email sent to your UMW email account when and where your requested materials are available. Articles will be sent electronically to your Interlibrary Loan account.
