How to Request
Before you submit the request form, please check WITCat and our A-Z Journals for availability. If you are sure we don’t have the item in question, proceed by filling out the request form as detailed as possible. Journal articles are generally supplied within 3 days, books usually take about 7-10 days. You will be notified by e-mail or telephone when your item arrives. Interlibrary loans must be returned on time or a fine may apply.
Do not sign the Copyright Declaration form if your article request is intended for commercial purposes (applies to any activity that is directly or indirectly income generating).
In this instance, you are required to contact the interlibrary loans team prior to submitting your request so that appropriate copyright fees can be applied. Users of WIT Libraries interlibrary loan service have a personal responsibility to become familiar with copyright law as it affects them.

All items ordered must be paid for upon receipt, and regardless of the waiting period involved. WIT Libraries cannot take responsibility for delays in receipt of items which are beyond our control.
