Prof. Maroney - English 101 - Fall 2023: Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Let’s say that you see an article and/or book that WCC does not have access to digitally, or physically, but you are really interested in getting it. We offer a service called interlibrary loan. We go outside of our system to get the article and/or book for you from another library. Articles are emailed to you and books arrive at the library for you to pick up. Articles are usually emailed to you within twenty four to forty eight hours after the request is sent and books generally take no more than two weeks to arrive. It depends on where the book is being sent from.
