Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Policies

  • If our library does not own or have access to a particular item, current LCCC students, staff, and faculty may request the item from another library through our Interlibrary Loan service.
  • Interlibrary Loan is not a guaranteed service. You may request an item which no other library is willing to lend. Textbooks, audiovisual materials, reference works, e-books, and recently published items are typically not available from other libraries. All requests are subject to copyright restrictions.
  • The length of time that you would have to wait for an Interlibrary Loan item is typically seven or more days.
  • Borrowers will be notified by phone or email when the requested item has arrived.
  • Interlibrary Loan books must be retrieved from and returned to the reference desk of the LCCC Library in Nanticoke.
  • An unreturned, lost, or damaged book is the financial responsibility of the borrower.
  • We reserve the right to limit the number of requests.
  • By making a request, you agree to abide by these Interlibrary Loan policies.
