Interlibrary Loan

Figure holding bookThe Madison College Libraries are happy to try and obtain up to five items at a time from other libraries for students, staff or faculty. We try to get material as quickly as possible, but keep in mind that depending on the availability of the item and other factors, it is not possible to guarantee when and if the item will arrive. Sorry, but we do not borrow or lend textbooks.  For more information, please see our policies.

Interlibrary Loan Form

When our libraries switched over to the new WorldShare Discovery system, Interlibrary Loan became much easier.  Please use the above process to submit an Interlibrary Loan request.  However, sometimes it is difficult to locate the item you are searching for in our catalog.  If that is the case, please follow the link below to describe the item you would like to borrow.  We will do our best to locate the item and request it from another institution.
