Personal or leisure requests: (1) will only be submitted to those libraries (located in the U.S.) that do not charge us ILL fees; (2) will be submitted to no more than 15 potential lenders; (3) will be canceled if unfilled after resorting to 15 potential lenders; and (4) will not be processed as rush orders. We will not borrow leisure materials internationally due to the added costs of obtaining from and returning loans to another country.
