Services to Other Libraries
Who Can Borrow From Us?
We provide our Interlibrary lending services to libraries and other non-profit agencies. If you are an individual who needs material from Wake Forest University, please consult a librarian at your university or public library.
How to Request
Wake Forest University’s Z. Smith Reynolds Library’s OCLC symbol is EWF.
Instead of faxing or mailing ALA requests, you can now request and track Interlibrary Loan transactions online. If you have an account, you can log in to place requests. Note: First time users need to contact ILL office to activate their account.
No telephone requests, please.
Books are shipped using USPS. Articles are sent electronically by Ariel or ILLiad Odyssey whenever possible. All other articles will be faxed or mailed USPS First Class.
