The Interlibrary Loan staff will copy articles from materials owned by McConnell Library, convert them to an electronic format (.pdf) and send you an email with a link and instructions as to how to access these articles. The document delivery service uses the same system and the same request forms as the interlibrary loan service for ease in requesting library materials. With this system, the request information is saved for future reference but the .pdf file is deleted after 30 days. Read More About Document Delivery.
