The Augusta University Libraries is pleased to announce that effective immediately, all AU faculty, students, staff and researchers will not be charged for any standard InterLibrary Loan fees under $75. This applies to all article, book chapter, and loan requests from any provider outside of the GALILEO system, including International. The Libraries recognizes that timely and reasonable access to research materials is essential to the success of the AU Community and should be provided without financial barriers. This reflects our commitment to the values of the University as well as the vision of our new Strategic Plan. Should you have any questions about this new initiative, please contact the Reese or Greenblatt Information Desks or your liaison librarian.
All interlibrary loan and document delivery must be within fair use parameters of copyright law.
About 75% of all materials borrowed from within the USG system of libraries arrive within 1 to 3 working days. Materials not owned by USG Libraries will take longer to arrive and, in some cases, may not be available. This is especially true for rare and unique items. The turnaround time for material requested during peak activity periods such as mid-terms and finals is often considerably longer than the standard 1 to 3 working days. Please remember, however, that requests placed on Fridays or the weekend/holidays will take additional time to handle.
