Request limits

Turnaround time

We attempt to fill all requests on the same day they are received, in the order they are received. If staffing resources are limited or total requests are high, it may take up to 2 business days for requests to be filled. If we are unable to keep this timeframe, we will let you know via email. This service should not be used for materials you need instantly or within a few hours.

For more information, please email ill-request@northwestern.edu anytime or call 847-491-7630 during office hours.
