Interlibrary Loan Policies


Before filling out an ILL request form, you should familiarize yourself with our request policies:

  • These items are not eligible for loan: Textbooks, items published within the past 12 months, videos, DVDs, audiocassettes, CD-ROMs, computer disks, microform, and special items.
  • You can’t request a loan for something that is already owned by the PCC Library.
  • You can only make three requests per week.
  • To make a request, you must be a PCC faculty or staff member or a currently registered student.
  • It can take at least 2-3 weeks to process and receive a requested item. If you need your material sooner, we recommend that you check other local libraries.
  • Due to budget constraints, you will be responsible for paying postage and any charges from the lending library. When completing the form, you can indicate a limit of how much you are willing to pay. This cost applies to students, faculty, and staff.

For any questions, call Lauren Bauer at (626) 585-3309.
