Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

COVID-19 - Interlibrary Loan (ILL) requests may take longer than normal to fulfill due to reduced staff and that many libraries are closed or not lending items through ILL.

The Library staff uses the OCLC WorldCat system to request an item from another library when it is unavailable from the LCSC Library.

Submit an ILL request, if you need an article, book, or media unavailable from the LCSC Library.

Article Request
Turnaround time takes at least one week.  Articles will be sent to patrons via LCMail.

Books & Media Request
ILL requests for books and media take two weeks and possibly longer due to COVID-19. Always allow as much time as possible.

Textbooks
The LCSC Library does not process ILL requests for textbooks.
