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

Spanish Language Databases

Borrowing Materials From Other Libraries (Interlibrary Loan - ILL)

  • Requests for articles, chapters, and other copies are being filled like normal.

  • Requests for loans of physical items are still somewhat limited – we appreciate your patience and ask that you observe a temporary limit of 10 active ILLs at a time.

  • Please expect delays (even for copies). Staffing levels at institutions across the country are still varied and will continue to be fluid in the months ahead.

  • E-books are not available via ILL; we can obtain the print version or we can request a few sections to be copied for you.

  • Physical items can be picked up at the Information Desk in the library; contactless pick-up is available for those that request it.

  • ILLs you no longer need can be returned to the Information Desk in the library or via the library’s book drop in the foyer.

  • Please request renewals on materials promptly - you'll receive email notices to remind you.

  • Email Sonja Timmerman ( with any ILL questions.
