Henry G. Bennett Memorial Library

Interlibrary Loan

HOW TO PLACE AN ILL REQUEST

  1. Determine availability of the item.  Search SE catalog 
  2. ILL Book request form
  3. ILL Article request form
  4. If confirmation is not received within 24 hours, please verify the request by contacting Darryl Rainbolt or call (580) 745-2931.
  5. Typically, books are received within two weeks of request; while articles can be received within three to seven days. Please indicate on your request form the latest date the material will be of value to you. Requests unfilled by the date indicated will be cancelled.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

  1. Interlibrary Loan is an agreement between libraries which can be rescinded at any time. The lending library might set limitations or restrictions on loans.
  2. If you want to extend the loan, please make the request at least 5 days before the book is due.
  3. Interlibrary Loan staff reserves the right to refuse Interlibrary Loan service to any patron who might jeopardize our agreements by violating lending libraries’ stipulations.
  4. Some items are difficult to acquire, and a few cannot be acquired. Foreign publications, items long out-of-print, and recently published items are especially problematic. Plan your research to allow additional time to acquire these items.
  5. Community card holders may not use Interlibrary Loan. Their community libraries will provide Interlibrary Loan services.

COPYRIGHT LAW

The Federal copyright law 94-553, enacted January 1, 1978, has placed a limit on the number of photocopies of articles that the SE library may request from recent periodical issues, i.e. those published in the last five years. In most cases this law will not affect our ability to request the materials that you need, but the Interlibrary Loan department reserves the right to refuse to process requests, which in our opinion, violates copyright law. On these occasions, Interlibrary Loan staff will provide patrons with information on how they might acquire the desired materials through sources other than Interlibrary Loan.
