Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan Policy

  1. We recommend that you request no more than 10 items at a time.
  2. New publications usually may not be borrowed for 3 months.
  3. The library is unable to borrow periodicals (magazine and journals), but will request photocopies of articles.  The library charges 15 cents per page for copies.
  4. ILL cannot borrow items printed before 1900.  We will try to borrow these materials in reprint or microform, if available.
  5. Patrons owing fines of $5.00 or more and/or lost materials may not request interlibrary loans until the fines have been reduced (under $5.00) and/or the lost materials are cleared. 
  6. ILL materials must be returned by their due date to avoid late charges.  In some cases ILL materials can be renewed.  Habitual failture to return ILL materials on time may result in individual loss of privilege to request interlibrary loans.
  7. Copyright laws apply to all interlibrary loans.


Fee Policy

  1. Postage Fees:  The patron will be charged for the cost of postage and insurance for each item shipped via U.S. Postal Service (on average $3.50-$4.50).  This usually applies to out-of-state loans.  We do not request out-of-state materials without the patron’s consent.
  2. Lending Library Fees:  The library will always try to borrow items from libraries that lend free of charge.  If a free source is not available, the patron will be required to pay the charges.  The patron will be notified and given opportunity to decline the requested materials and the lending library fees.
