Interlibrary Loan (ILL) enables PCC students, faculty, and staff to obtain materials that are not available in the PCC or Summit library catalog. 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.

- By selecting a "Delivery Location", you will be indicating where you want to pick up your materials.
