Why limit your options?

If the CMU Library does not have what you need, the Interlibrary Loan Department can obtain articles and borrow books, music, movies, or documentaries for you. Take advantage of this popular and valuable service for faculty, staff, and students. It's fast, easy, and free!

Place a new request, check on the status of an existing request, or retrieve your article through ILLiad (our Interlibrary Loan system). Articles are easily retrieved from your desktop, tablet, or smart device.

Physical items are delivered to the CMU Library Checkout & Reserves Desk, or to the Montrose or Western Colorado Community College campuses.

Typical arrival time:

Articles: 1 - 3 business days.

Books or other materials: 3 - 5 business days.

Average service time:

ILL articles received: 10.8 hours

ILL articles delivered: 5.1 hours
