Borrow from Another Library: Interlibrary Loan

If you need to borrow a book or article from another library, you will find the necessary forms in this guide.

Can't find it at MCC? Try ILL!

If the book or article you need isn't available at the MCC Library, you can have it delivered from libraries throughout the country by using interlibrary loan (ILL).

When you request an ILL, we borrow the book or article you need from another library. That library sends the item to us, and then check it out to you.

If you search for an article or book on the library's website and see the the ILL button (below), you can click it and fill out the linked form to request the item.

If you cannot find an item using the library's search feature, or if you cannot find the ILL button, request the item you need by using the forms below:
