Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

For Current Students, Faculty, and Staff

Items that are not in MCC's collections can be obtained through interlibrary loan from other CCSNH libraries, or libraries within the United States. Digital ILLs take a few business days, and physical items may take up to two weeks to arrive. Plan ahead for materials that will be needed for papers and projects. There is no charge for this service.

The Library does not charge fines for overdue materials, however, library users will receive several notices about overdue items. Users who fail to return overdue materials after an extended period of time will be billed for replacement of the materials.
