Borrowing From Other Libraries(Interlibrary Loan)

Make a Request

What is interlibrary loan?

Interlibrary loan, or ILL, is a system that allows libraries to share resources with one another. The ILL librarian at the PSC Library locates a library that owns a book or periodical or media and sends a borrower's request to the lending library.

Who can make an ILL request?

PSC Students, Faculty and Staff can make requests through the Illiad sign in page.

Will it cost anything?

The library always attempts to acquire material that are provided free of charge.

However, if the request involves a fee we will notify the patron and receive approval before processing request.

How long will it take?

The amount of time taken to receive an item from another library depends upon the type of item requested and the library that will lend the material to PSC.

You are encouraged to place your request well in advance of the time that the resource is needed so that ample time is left to process and receive the item.
