Interlibrary Loan Holiday Schedule

We know it seems really early (It’s not even Thanksgiving yet!) but we want you to be able to get in any requests that you need for your research.

Here’s the deal on Interlibrary Loans.

November 20 – Last day to order books during the Fall Semester

December 4 – Last day to order any material before the beginning of January

Faculty and graduate students who will be in Clemson over the holidays may continue ordering beyond these dates but should contact the ILL office first (864-656-5186) before ordering any books.

Why doesn’t ILL take requests after these dates?

  • It can take 2 weeks to get a book from another library, longer during the holiday mailing rush. There will be a slow-down in processing at other libraries during Thanksgiving Break. Books requested after November 20th are not likely to get here before the end of the semester.
  • Many schools stop lending materials around Dec. 1.
