Typically, material owned by one of the USF campuses is available within 3-5 business days (assuming the material is on the shelf and not checked out to another patron).
When it is necessary to obtain materials from non-USF institutions, the wait is approximately 2-4 weeks. Your request is processed within 24-hours of receipt — the delay is incurred while awaiting action by the lending library, over whom we have no control.
You can help speed the process by:
only using abbreviations when your source citation uses them
providing complete citations
check the USF Catalog first
make sure your contact information in ILLiad is current
include an ISBN/ISSN or an OCLC/WorldCat Assession number in your request
