Answer

How long it takes to get an interlibrary loan item depends on where the lending library is and how long it takes for them to send it. It usually takes a couple of weeks, but it can take up to a month. If the request is difficult and has to be sent out several times, that can also make it take longer.

If the item is an article sent electronically, it can arrive within a few days.
