Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loans for TBCC Students, Staff and Faculty

Need a book or journal article that the library doesn't have? Request an interlibrary loan. We will locate a library that has the item, and contact them to see if they will lend it.

Search WorldCat yourself and see if the material you want is available.

There is no guarantee that we will be able to obtain every item you request, but we will certainly try. Ask a library staff member for more information or to fill out a request.

Interlibrary Loan Guidelines
  • A maximum of 3 requests at any one time. A request is considered active from the time it is initiated until three days after the material is returned.
  • The library is unable to borrow items published in the current calendar year. Please make a purchase request.
  • Copyright laws apply to all interlibrary loans.
  • Most requests will take about two weeks to fulfill.

Materials available for Interlibrary Loan
Generally books and journal articles are available for interlibrary loan. This does not include textbooks or items from most libraries' reference collections.
