Interlibrary Loan: What is Interlibrary Loan?

ILL Policies

Who may submit ILL requests?

  • Current MCCNH students, faculty, and staff are eligible to request materials through ILL.

What can be borrowed with ILL?

Books, articles, or DVDs can be requested through interlibrary loan from other CCSNH libraries, or libraries within the United States. You can search the CCSNH catalog, WorldCat, or simply fill out the MCC ILL request form with as much information about the item as you have. Note that items published in the last 6 months may be hard to obtain, but you can ask us, and we'll do our best!

You can also click on the ILL link in your database search results to request an item:

How long will it take for materials to arrive from other libraries?

  • Short answer: Anywhere between 2 days and 2 weeks.
  • Long answer: It really depends on where we obtain the materials and how they are sent to us. Articles that can be emailed or faxed to us on your behalf will take less time than materials (e.g. books, and DVDs) that are sent through the U.S. mail.
  • On rare occasions we may not be able to obtain materials requested. But we will make every attempt to obtain exact or comparable materials.

How much does it cost?

  • NOTHING!  There are few things in life that are free, but this is one of them! Take advantage of it. There is no limit to the number of items that you request.
