Although turn-around times may vary, in general:
- Books from other JHU libraries 1 - 3 business days, depending on the work load in Baltimore. If you requested a book from another JHU library and it hasn't arrived within 3 days, please ask a SAIS Library Circulation Desk staff member.
- Books from BorrowDirect libraries take 5 working days to arrive. You will receive a confirmation email when you make the request.
- Books from non-JHU libraries (interlibrary loan) usually take between 10 and 14 days to arrive, as most arrive via US mail.
- Articles, and sometimes chapters of books, are generally available within 2-3 business days, and are usually delivered electronically.
Please plan ahead when doing research for papers and other projects!
