Interlibrary Loan (of materials from Other Libraries) Guidelines & Policies

The Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States defines Interlibrary Loan (ILL) as "the process by which a library requests material from, or supplies material to, another library." Interlibrary loan (as defined by this code) is to obtain material for users that are not available in the user's local library and at Austin Community College the ILL process is provided for ACC curriculum design and assignment research and information for current ACC students, faculty and staff.

Opportunities and restrictions for ILL resources and services — based on ACC resources and staffing levels includes:

Opportunities Restrictions
* Examples of requests referred to other libraries include materials NOT connected to a user's area of ACC teaching and learning or materials NOT connected to a user's potential area of ACC teaching and learning. Other issues completely or partially referred to other libraries may include excessive loan requests or frequent repetitive loan requests.
