Interlibrary Loan (of materials from Other Libraries)

Found a reference to a book or to an article in a periodical which is not owned by ACC?

The Interlibrary Loan Department (ILL)can locate books and articles for you which are NOT available at ACC. ILL is provided for ACC curriculum design and assignment research and information for current ACC students, faculty and staff.


Note: ACC will not request materials that an ACC library owns. You may want to check the Library Catalog for books, or our electronic resources for articles first.

Materials Not Available for Loan

ACC Library Services has reciprocal agreements with other libraries to lend and borrow library materials. There are certain materials that we do not lend to other libraries and, thus, do not request similar materials from them. Materials not usually available for interlibrary loan include current periodicals and bound periodical volumes, newspapers, manuscripts, reference works, required textbooks, genealogical and local history materials, audiovisual materials, theses, dissertations, microforms.
