Request articles and books from another library

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.
