Inter-Library Loan: Requesting Items from Other Libraries

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

How to Request an item:

  1. Double check the library catalog and databases. We do not request items the library already owns.
  2. Search WorldCat Discovery, or other LBC databases to retrieve the item record. Those items not owned by LBC will display the option to "Request the item through Interlibrary Loan."
  3. Fill out the interlibrary loan form completely. Much of the items information will be filled in, however, double checking is always best practice. 
  4. Select "Submit" to request the item.

The library staff process interlibrary loans daily Monday-Friday.

Inter-Library Loan is an academic service. Please utilize public libraries for personal use. 

Please allow 3-6 business days for articles to reach you via e-mail and up to two weeks for books to arrive by mail.

All renewals should be submitted 2 business days before the due date and are at the discretion of the lending library.

Please contact Andrew Keenan, (ILL@lbc.edu or 717-560-8200, ext. 5112), for more information about the interlibrary loan service.
