INTERLIBRARY LOANS CONTINUE TO BE SUSPENDED
As the library begins its phased reopening, we ask that all Interlibrary Loans currently checked out be returned to the Library during our open return hours. We will return these items to the lenders; libraries across the country are currently returning items to the owning libraries.
We hope to begin accepting requests for Interlibrary Loans in mid to late July. Our website ILL page will be updated once we offer this service again. In the meantime, if you need article requests, you can continue to email firstname.lastname@example.org and she will look for libraries copying articles through their e-resources.
If you placed a request before our closure and did not receive it before we closed the building or it wasn’t sent to you during the closure, you will need to resubmit that request once we offer Interlibrary Loan services again.
Thank you for your understanding.
INTERLIBRARY LOAN (ILL) @ your library
Interlibrary Loan, or ILL, allows you to search for and request to borrow items in thousands of other libraries throughout the United States. Requests for ILL items will be limited to three (3) requests per patron at any one time. Requests over three (3) may be canceled without notice. If you need more than three (3) items at a time, please contact the director or the Interlibrary Loan Coordinator. This service is free unless a lending library charges. If an item is not available for free, but only for a charge, the Library will contact you to obtain approval.
PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST NEW RELEASES THROUGH INTERLIBARY LOAN. If you would like to borrow a new item published within the last 12 months, please submit a SUGGEST A PURCHASE form instead of an interlibrary loan request.
Due to considerable cost in terms of staff time and postage, the Library adheres to the following guidelines:
Types of materials available to borrow through interlibrary loan:
- DVDs – Feature Films and Documentaries
- Photocopies of articles from magazines, newspapers, and journals
- Some genealogy materials
Types of materials not available to borrow through Interlibrary Loan:
- Items the Library already owns or is ordering
- New items published or released within the last 12 months based on availability at lending libraries
- Journal, magazine, or newspaper articles available through our online library databases
- Downloadable content, electronic resources, or computer games
- Whole issues of magazines or newspapers
- Some genealogy materials
If you’d like to renew an ILL item, please contact the Library on or shortly before the date that the item is due. Some libraries do not renew interlibrary loans.
