InterLibrary Loan Tutorial

Requesting Items from Other Libraries

Lancaster Bible College is a member of OCLC, a network of libraries that cooperates in resource-sharing of library materials. Interlibrary loan is a cooperative borrowing and lending service among these libaries.

How to Request an item:

  1. Check the library catalog, since we do not request items the library already owns.
  2. Search WorldCat Discovery, LBC OneSearch or other LBC databases to retrieve the item record. Those items not owned be the Jones Library will have the option to "Request the item through Interlibrary Loan."
  3. Fill out the interlibrary loan form completely. Enter the full title of the publication.
  4. Select "Submit" to request the item. The library staff process interlibrary loans daily Monday-Friday
