Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Library patrons are encouraged to utilize the local courier service for material from other local libraries. However, if the items are unavailable in one of the local libraries, you may request an interlibrary loan from a different library system.
Please follow the instructions below in order to process an Interlibrary Loan* request:
1. Check OCPLC's card catalog to see if we own the item(s). Library staff will be happy to assist you with this search.
2. Proceed with the Interlibrary Loan Form below if the item(s) are unavailable. We will contact you regarding the requested material once the request has been received by our ILL coordinator.
If possible, enter the ISBN, publisher, and publication date in the Comments box to assist in accuracy. Article requests must contain the magazine name, volume #, and page numbers. Some libraries charge fees for additional copies.
Interlibrary Loan Policy: ILL items may be checked out for 2 weeks but renewals are possible by calling the ILL coordinator for permission, however some libraries may stipulate a 2 week period only with no renewals. If you are interested in renewing an ILL item, you must call the library and request an extension from the ILL coordinator. Patrons requesting ILL materials are responsible for any damaged, lost, or stolen items associated with their library account.
