Interlibrary Loan (ILL) at Old Westbury

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free service that allows Old Westbury students, staff, and faculty to request articles, books, and other material from other libraries.

 ILL services for borrowing both online and print resources have resumed.

Due to possible mail delays as well as processing delays from our lending libraries and safety steps we have implemented to protect library staff, your ILL borrowed print materials will likely not be available for you to pick up until 1-2 weeks.
