Interlibrary Loan Guidelines

Overview

    The Interlibrary Loan Department provides access for students, staff, and faculty of Salt Lake Community College to a vast amount of information that is not available at our Libraries. By use of national and worldwide library catalogs we can track down and provide, either in the form of a borrowed book, or digital file of an article, almost anything the user might need. Through cooperative agreements we borrow items needed by our patrons from libraries around the country.
    Contact our ILL Specialist: 801-957-6201 or via email.
    In order to submit a request, login to ILLiad.
