Interlibrary Loan (ILL) enables PCC students, faculty, and staff to obtain materials that are not available through the PCC library or Summit. The lending library determines whether a particular item can be provided. Regional agreements regulating interlibrary loan and federal copyright law also place limitations on the types of materials that may be borrowed, as well as the number of articles that can be requested from journals. Textbooks are not available via ILL.

First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan

PCC faculty, staff, and current students can access the ILLiad system with their PCC Common Login credentials here. When you log in for the first time, you will be prompted to fill out a registration form. Registration has four purposes:

  • Entering your personal information into the ILLiad system means you will not have to supply the information again when making future requests.
  • Having your PCC e-mail on file with Interlibrary Loan enables us to notify you promptly and deliver materials accurately when your request arrives in the library.
  • By using your MyPCC username and password, you will have secure access to information about your requests. You will also be able to review the list of items you have requested in the past.
  • By selecting a "Delivery Location", you will be indicating where you want to pick up your materials.
