What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a cooperative service with other libraries in which MCCCD libraries will borrow (and lend) materials from other local, regional, and national libraries on behalf of a registered student, faculty and/or staff member of MCCCD.
- ILL is only available to students, faculty and staff.
- Once the requested items are received, your college library will notify you. All items will be held at your library's Circulation Desk.
- Loan periods and restrictions are determined by the lending library and not your college library.
ILL Request Steps
- Ensure that no other MCCCD library has the item. Search the MCCCD Library Catalog to confirm the item is not at a MCCCD library.
- You will need to create a seperate account to generate the request. See the FAQ page for more information.

- At times, there can be a charge associated with the requested item. You can limit your liability for the charge by specifying the maximum amount you are willing to pay (from $0.00 or higher)
