Plan Ahead – Submit ILL Requests Now

George Mason University - Tue, 11/29/2016 - 10:22

Interlibrary Loan requests submitted to our office after December 9, 2016 may experience shipping delays through early January 2017. Document Delivery books requested from any George Mason University library may also experience delays. Expect Document Delivery items to take 2 or more business days for delivery. George Mason Interlibrary Loan & Reserves Office will be closed December 22, 2016 through January 4, 2017. Processing ILLiad requests will begin when the office opens on January 5, 2017.
