Interlibrary Loan is a program that allows MATC faculty, staff, and students to borrow items from other participating libraries based on their circulation policy. Loan requests are made only for items not held by MATC Libraries.
The InterLibrary Loan (ILL) program allows students, faculty, and staff to request books, A/V materials and journal articles from any non-MATC library. The items are then shipped to MATC. There is a maximum of 5 ILL requests per week by an individual. ILL requests are not made for textbooks or for items the MATC Library already owns. ILL requests may take up to 3 weeks to receive. The loan period for ILL items is typically 2 weeks. Renewals are up to the discretion of the owning library. Fees will be applied to overdue or lost interlibrary loan items. ILL requests may be submitted through a reference librarian.
You must have a current MATC ID number to borrow ILL items.
A librarian will contact you to confirm your request and give you more information about the availability and time frame for the materials you have requested. Although we will give it our best effort, we cannot guarantee that the materials you need will be available.
