Intralibrary and Interlibrary Loan [ILL] Policy
Section A: Intralibrary Loan
Intralibrary loan service is available to all SMCCD students, faculty and staff who need specific resources which are available at other libraries in the Peninsula Library System.
Section B: Interlibrary Loan
Interlibrary loan service is available to students, staff, faculty, and PLS community cardholders who need specific resources which are available at other libraries (outside of the Peninsula Library System).
Section C: Service Charges, Miscellaneous Fees, Lost or Damaged Materials
There are no ILL service charges for SMCCCD students, faculty and staff (presentation of a current college I.D. may be required). Other PLS cardholders will be charged the ILL fee as established at their home PLS library.
Any fees charged by the lending library - postage, insurance, photocopy costs, ILL service fee - are the responsibility of the requesting user [including students, faculty and staff of the SMCCCD] and must be paid in full before using the borrowed material.
All library borrowers are fully responsible for any costs assessed by the lending library in connection with lost or damaged materials.
CSM Library adheres to the American Library Association (ALA) Guidelines for InterLibrary Loan.
