Latest service and space updates: VCU Libraries COVID-19 response

Interlibrary Loan and Delivery Services department closed Dec. 21-Jan. 5

December 3, 2019

VCU Libraries' interlibrary loan and delivery services will not operate during the VCU Winter Closing Dec. 21 to Jan. 5. Researchers are encouraged to submit requests now so you have materials in hand when needed. 

The time required to obtain materials from other institutions increases greatly during December and January due to breaks, holiday mail volume and increased end-of-semester workloads. Many libraries do not lend at all from mid-December through mid-January. With this in mind, some of your requested materials may not be available until January 2020. 

Should your interlibrary loan item become due while we are closed, you may keep and return the item when the office opens Jan. 6, 2020. Borrowers will not incur any fees for interlibrary loan materials that become due during the VCU Winter Break. 

Contact Resource Sharing and Delivery at or 804-828-1115 if you have questions.
