If PCC Library does not own a print or electronic copy of a book that you need, we can help you locate the book at another local library or in most cases, have another library mail the book to us so that you can check it out. We can help you with this process!
We share our library catalog with other community college libraries across the state. You can search these libraries and request the item(s) you would like to have sent to PCC Library, by using the library catalog.
Use WorldCat to search library catalogs from all over the world. Note that we can only borrow books from libraries located in the United States.
Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service that allows a user from one library to borrow materials from another library. Materials are physically mailed to the requesting library where the user can then view or check out the materials.
**Allow at least 5-10 business days for delivery of items.**
You will be contacted by phone or e-mail once the items have arrived.
The lending library determines the due date, and it will be posted on the label attached to each item. Return ILL materials by the due date so that our relationship with lending libraries is not jeopardized.
This service is available without cost to PCC faculty, staff, students, and community residents with a valid PCC Library card. In some instances there may be a charge for journal articles; however, you will be contacted about any charges before the order is placed.
If you want to order a book located at another library, fill out the online interlibrary loan (ILL) form. Fill out the form as completely as possible.
