Definition: An interlibrary loan (ILL) is a transaction in which library material, or a copy of the material, is made available by one library or institution to another upon request.
Purpose: The purpose of ILL is to obtain materials not available in the TCC collection for TCC Library patrons. ILL also lends circulating materials from the TCC Library to other institutions and libraries.
Conditions of Service: The conditions of this service are set by the 1994 Interlibrary Loan Code for the United States (www.ala.org/rusa/guidelines/interlibrary) and special agreements with other libraries. Reciprocal borrowing agreements are observed and all United States Copyright laws are adhered to. Current year’s books and media items are lent at the discretion of campus Librarians.
My ILL Account: All TCC students, faculty and staff have a personal user portal where they can place, track, renew and manage requests. To login, patrons must use a College-wide ID number (T#) and password. All ILL requests must be generated through this portal. Click "Place a Request" above to access the user portal.
By submitting a request through ILL you acknowledge and agree to all of the terms and conditions listed below.
COPYRIGHT LAW & INTERLIBRARY LOAN
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research". If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
TCC LIBRARY ILL GUIDELINES
Library patrons checking out material borrowed from other institutions are responsible for returning the material to the library no later than the established due date. Failure to return an item by the due date may result in fines or fee, including the lending locations replacement charge for the item. If an item is extremely overdue and a replacement fee has been paid by the TCC Library to the lending institution, the library patron will be billed an automatic $30 processing fee on top of the replacement cost for the item. Patron accounts will be temporarily blocked when items become extremely overdue. Blocks will be removed as soon as items are returned in good condition.
More ILL guidelines can be viewed on the Library's Mission & Guidelines page.
