• If the Library does not have the book, periodical or other information you need, materials may be borrowed from local libraries.  There is usually no charge, however, if the loaning library charges a fee, that fee is passed along to the patron. The patron will be informed of any costs before the ILL is generated.  Payment may be expected before the ILL is completed.  ILL requests are taken from our currently enrolled students, faculty and staff.
  • All ILL requests should be initiated through an MPC Reference Librarian, who can help determine the availability of requested materials in local or other libraries.
  • The library does not borrow or loan textbooks.
  • We do not ILL materials within the copyright of the current year. 
  • Materials that are borrowed from other libraries may have loaning limits (such as in library use only, or for a specific amount of time with no renewals).  MPC observes whatever borrowing limits are requested by the loaning library. 
  • Community users are referred to their local public library for any interlibrary loans.
  • Materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan may be picked up at the Circulation Desk.
  • Please feel free to discuss ILL's with any librarian at the Reference Desk.
