Community Users - Interlibrary Loan

"Interlibrary loans" are items borrowed for patrons 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.

Community patrons 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. (When ordering a set of items, each item within the "set" counts as a single item.) Patrons 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.

Requests: Requests are made through PrimoVE or WorldCat.

Renewals: Renewals of interlibrary loan items can be requested at Coulter Library either in person, by phone, or by e-mail. Renewals must be requested at least three days before an item is due, or the request will not be accepted. 

Overdue Interlibrary Loan Items: Coulter Library's relationships with other lending libraries rely on timely return of ILL items. Therefore, three late returns will result in the loss of Interlibrary loan privileges.
