Regular Interlibrary Loan document requests (requesting documents from other schools) usually takes about 2-5 business days depending on how fast the other library sends the article to our library. Sometimes they are faster and but it can take up to 10 business days to receive an article.
There is also the option of a "Rush Request" which costs $10. With the Rush Request the document should get to you within 1-3 business days.
The ILL department can try to get your article to you but we cannot promise it will be here by the time your paper is due since even a rush request can take up to Friday to get the article.
If you would like to make a request, here is a link to the request forms: http://www.stevens.edu/library/Interlibraryloan
PLEASE NOTE: In both regular and rush document requests, the ILL department does its best to get the article that you need, however, there are times that documents are not available and the library may not be able to obtain them for you.
