SPA 321: Faces of Spain, Spring 2020: Finding Articles

Spanish Language Databases

Borrowing Materials From Other Libraries (Interlibrary Loan - ILL)

Expect delays.  Please note that at this time we can receive only electronic items through interlibrary loan and the turn-around time for access to digitized materials may be longer than normal.

Try to request articles or individual chapters from books but expect delays. Copyright guidelines will be more relaxed, but staffing reductions and closures will still impact turnaround time and amount of materials we can reasonably ask other institutions to digitize.

Return ILLs you no longer need before you leave campus.

Libraries are pledging to be generous with renewals; please continue to request renewals when you are able, and email Sonja Timmerman ( with any questions about due dates.

Email Sonja Timmerman ( with any ILL questions - the department will remain open and staffed and will work with individuals to resolve issues.
