Intra-Library Loan Requests

Intra-Library Loans

Intra-library loan (ILL) is a service you can use to obtain books from other Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) Libraries. Intra-Library Loan is available to all LACCD students, faculty, and staff.
Please note that LACCD does not participate in Interlibrary Loan, which borrows books from Libraries outside of our District.

ILL Procedure:
  1. Users will now place their own ILL request through LACC's Online Public Access Catalog.
  2. Before you search for items, change the Library dropdown to "ALL"  to search all LACCD library holdings.
  3. Once you have found a book you would like to have sent to LACC, click on the item, and then click on "Place Hold." (Note: Items that cannot be requested will not have the "Place Hold" option.)
  4. Input your student ID number (or library barcode number for faculty and staff) and your pin (month and day of your birthday). 
  5. Select your pickup location and submit the hold.
  6. It takes approximately up to 5 working days to receive the requested material.
  7. You might also personally go to any LACCD library that has the item and check it out with your LACC student ID.
ILL Policies
  • Patrons will receive an email notification once a book arrives and is available for check out. You will pick up material(s) at the circulation desk on the first floor.  Items will be held for seven days.  
  • The maximum number of requests or items borrowed shall not exceed three (3) books at any one time. 
  • You can borrow books for up to 4 weeks (renewals are not allowed).
  • Only general collection circulating books can be requested through the ILL process.
  • Materials that are not available for ILL include the following:
    • Reference materials
    • Reserve materials (2 hour textbooks and 7 day items
    • Items on "New Book Display"
    • Newspapers, magazines and journals
  • We make our best effort to help you place the request, but it is at the discretion of the holding library to fulfill it. 
ILL Fines and Fees
  • There is no charge to use ILL service. However, you will be responsible or liable for any late, lost, or damaged materials. 
  • Please return materials on time, directly to the circulation desk, to avoid fines and holds on your record. Failure to return material may result in suspension of library privileges. 
  • Overdue fines will be charged and paid at the receiving library through the Fiscal Office.  The money will be kept by the receiving library.
  • Paying bills for lost items will be handled by the owning library.
