Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

"Interlibrary loans" are items borrowed for students by Coulter Library from other libraries, and consequently are subject to varying loan periods and renewal periods, depending upon the lending library's policies. Interlibrary loans are subject to federal copyright laws.

Students may request up to five (5) single returnable items (books, tapes, DVDs, CDs, etc.) and five (5) single non-returnable items (e.g., articles) within a one-month period through interlibrary loan with a valid Coulter Library account. (When ordering a set of items, each item within the "set" counts as a single item.) Students may only have five (5) returnable items out at one time. ILL media requests are limited to twenty (20) single media items (DVDs, CDs, tapes, etc.) per year. To request an item, students can e-mail occill@sunyocc.edu. In addition, an on-line ILL form is also available through the WorldCat database. A link to this ILL form is found on the item record under "Borrow this item from another library".

If an ILL item is not returned, a campus-wide (PERC) restriction will be placed on the student's account which will prevent him/her from registering or receiving a transcript until his/her obligation to Coulter Library for the ILL item(s) has been fulfilled.
