Interlibrary Loan graphic How long does it take?

Interlibrary loan is available to Delta College administration, faculty, staff and students. Michigan residents not affiliated with Delta College may also use our interlibrary loan services.  If the request is for someone younger than 16, then a parent or guardian must initiate the interlibrary loan request. All interlibrary loan material must be picked up and returned to the Delta College Library. There is no charge for interlibrary loan services.
