About Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

What is ILL?

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.

Due Dates

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.
