Interlibrary Loan Services

Introduction

Interlibrary Loans are books or journal articles that are not in Grossmontís collection that may be requested from other libraries.  Grossmont College is part of the worldwide interlibrary loan system and can access books from thousands of libraries.  Students, faculty, and staff may request items by filling out a form while in the library or by using the on-line interlibrary loan form.

Obtaining Books

Books from  SDSU  and Cuyamaca College can be obtained in a day or two.  Books from other libraries can take up to four weeks to obtain.

Obtaining Journal Articles

Journal articles from SDSU  and Cuyamaca College can be obtained in two or three days.  Articles from other libraries can take up to four weeks to obtain.

Charges for Loans

Most Interlibrary loan books are free from the lending institution, and therefore free to students. However if a student chooses to request a book that has charges attached to it, the student will be notified in advance of the charges, and the book ordered if the student will pay the charges.  The least expensive lending institution will, of course, be chosen. 

Overdue Charges
Charges for overdue books are $3.00 per day.
