About Us

What is Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is the name we use for borrowing items we do not own from another library. Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery. Whitaker Library provides this service free for the Chowan University Community.

How do I request items through ILL?

Search the Library's Catalog to see if we own the item you are looking for.


If you find a book or article the library does not own while searching the library's catalog, then there is an easy link you can click on to request the book/ article.
