Document Delivery/ILL Service for Faculty

Wiggins Memorial Library provides faculty with deliveries of Campbell library materials and interlibrary loans through a single service.


  • Log in to your ILLiad account in order to initiate a request to borrow materials. Please make a separate request for each book title, journal article, or other item. Accurate and complete bibliographic information speeds processing. Please indicate in the notes if it is owned by Campbell.
  • Circulating items will be delivered to you on campus at your office or departmental office. These materials are checked out to you, and may be reviewed in your CamelCat account.
  • Articles from print journals held by the library are scanned and delivered electronically in your ILLiad account.
  • Most document delivery requests are available within two business days.
  • If a requested item is not immediately available in the Campbell University Libraries, we will obtain it through interlibrary loan.
  • ILL articles usually arrive in 2-3 days and will be posted in your ILLiad account.
  • ILL books usually arrive in 3-7 days. They will be delivered to you upon arrival.
  • For more information about ILL, please visit the Interlibrary Loan page.
  • Refer any questions to the Research Assistance librarians.

Limitations on Scanning

  • The library adheres to the copyright law of the United States (Title 17, U. S. Code) when providing articles through document delivery.
  • We can only provide one article from a single issue of a journal at a time.
  • Documents will be scanned in black and white.
  • Articles are provided for the purpose of private study or research. Any other use may require the permission of the copyright owner. It is the responsibility of the requestor to comply with all applicable copyright laws.

Copyright Restrictions

The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purposes other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
