Inter-Library Loan Request

Before starting an inter-library loan request, please check our catalog for the item.  If you are looking for a book or other item that Western Piedmont Community College Library does not own, you may request it through inter-library loan.  This service is available to full- and part-time students and full- and part-time faculty and staff. Contact a Library staff member to make an inter-library loan request.

Inter-library loan requests can take up to 10 to 14 days to fill, depending on the outside lending institution.  As inter-library books are received, they are delivered to the Western Piedmont Community College Library.  You will be notified when the Library receives the request, or if there are any problems in obtaining the inter-library loan item.

The loan periods are set by the lending library and the time can vary from a few days to several weeks.  It is essential that all inter-library loan patrons take special care of borrowed books from the participating inter-library loan libraries.  Please help us to remain in good standings with other participating libraries by taking special care of your books and promptly returning book on or before the due date.  Contact the WPCC Library for more information about renewals (before the due date), because not all libraries offer extended checkouts.  If an inter-library loan book is lost or damaged, the charges will be billed to the WPCC Library by the lender and those charges will be charged to you.
