Document Delivery Fee Structure

Open AllClose All
  • Document delivery requests are accepted via  the ILLiad request management system. Due to copyright law restrictions, we cannot accept requests via phone or any other method other than these ordering systems.

  • A maximum of 5 document delivery requests are processed per person per day. Additional requests will be filled as time permits.

  • Requests are usually filled within 3 business days if the item is available in MCW Libraries (internal document delivery); 5-10 days otherwise (Interlibrary Loan).

  • MCW Libraries follows U.S. copyright guidelines. Interlibrary Loan policies (PDF), internal document delivery policies (PDF), and PRONTO (For-profit) policies have been reviewed by MCW Legal Counsel.

  • Fees listed represent fees without copyright royalties or other additional fees which may be charged if the document cannot be obtained via normal interlibrary loan channels. Documents are always obtained from the least expensive sources. Users are able to indicate the amount of money they are willing to pay on the document delivery request form. If the fees would surpass that amount, the user is notified.

  • Prices are subject to change.
