I would like to request:
Note: This is a free service for all C.O.D. Library Card holders
Interlibrary Loan is a free service offered to anyone who has a current C.O.D. Library Card. You may apply for a Library card at the Circulation Desk.
Journal, magazine, or newspaper articles usually take about 5 working days to arrive. Books usually take 10 working days or more. You will be notified by phone or e-mail (your choice) when the item is available.
Pick up your ordered item at the Circulation Desk in the C.O.D. Library after you have been notified by phone or email of its arrival. When the article that you requested is sent to us in electronic form, we will e-mail it to you or you may have an Interlibrary Loan article mailed to your home. The cost is $2.00 per article. We do not mail Interlibrary Loan books.
Certain items may not be requested through Interlibrary Loan:
The lending library sets the due date. If you need the book longer, contact the Interlibrary Loan staff at 942-2166 or by email at least three days before the due date. Once the book is overdue, a renewal cannot be arranged. Overdue fines are 25 cents per day per book. Do not contact the lending library.
Return the book to the Circulation Desk in the C.O.D. Library.
There are no limits for students, C.O.D. faculty, administrators and staff. Community Borrowers may only request/have 10 items at one time and there is a limit of 25 items (books or articles) per semester.
Photocopies of articles or chapters do not need to be returned. They are yours to keep.
Yes, you may, but be aware that textbooks are not readily available in libraries. If we are successful at locating the textbook for you, the loan period is likely to be much shorter than the length of the semester--usually about a month. You might be able to renew the book, but again, the book is likely to be due back before the semester is finished.
Your card may be expired or you may owe the Library money for overdue materials. You can check your library record online at https://lrc.cod.edu/patroninfo~S0. Please go to the Circulation Desk to update or clear your card.
