Interlibrary Loan Service
In an effort to provide expanded access to information, the Library provides interlibrary loan for all students, staff and faculty. The purpose of the interlibrary loan service is to locate and obtain documents from other libraries to lend to Our Lady of the Lake College students and faculty. Requests for interlibrary loan may be made by calling the circulation desk or emailing the College Library at Library@ololcollege.edu.
Request forms can be obtained at the new Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery office in the Library Commons. A copy of the form is also available below to print. Just fill out the top section of the form. Citation information must be attached to or written on the form. If you are emailing a request, please include all information that you would on the request form, along with the citation information.
Interlibrary loan requests are processed Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 12 PM. The College Library makes all efforts to process requests within 2 business days of receipt. No requests will be processed on weekends or days that the Library is closed. Delivery time can take 1 day to 2 weeks for articles and 2 or more weeks for books (book delivery time varies greatly). Please plan on at least a 1 week minimum for articles and 2 week minimum for books.
