Document Delivery

Need a Print Book?

Books physically located at the library can be delivered to online education and extended campus students by postal mail.  Books not owned by Campbell University Libraries can be borrowed from other libraries, and delivered to you by postal mail.

Learn how to request a book delivery.

If you have questions about Document Delivery, you may contact a librarian at, or via phone at (910) 893-1467.

When we don't have it...


Resources not owned by the Campbell University Libraries can be borrowed from other libraries through ILLiad, an interlibrary loan (ILL) system available to Campbell faculty, staff, and students as an aid to research and study. Request it through our Interlibrary Loan service and we will borrow it from another library.  This service is free of cost.  Please allow up to 4-5 days for book requests, and 2-3 days for articles.

Check out this online tutorial to learn how to use ILLiad.


OneSearch combines most of the library's books, journal articles, and digital resources into a single search.
