Interlibrary Loan

The World Is Our Library!

Books or articles that are not available in your campus library may be borrowed from other campuses via intercampus loan (ICL), or from other institutions via interlibrary loan (ILL).

Items that can be obtained from libraries within the Florida College System are usually received within 3 to 7 days. Other items may take up to 2 weeks to be received. The loan period for an ILL item depends on the policy of the lending institution.

Contact your campus library Reference Desk for assistance with placing ICL or ILL requests.
