Interlibrary loan requests are usually sent to potential lending libraries for consideration within one business day. Most article requests are then filled by lenders within three days, and most loans are filled within two weeks.  But the time could be extended due to a variety of factors, for example, difficulty finding a lender, method of shipping, how far an item needs to be shipped, holiday schedules, etc.

Article Express requests are processed much faster, as delivery is electronic.  In most cases, delivery happens within just 24-48 hours.
