Interlibrary Loan Guidelines for JCC Library Patrons

Our Interlibrary Loan service can obtain materials from other libraries that are not available at the Library (this can include items that are checked out, lost, missing, on order, etc.). Interlibrary Loan service is free and available to all patrons - students, faculty/staff and community. 

Articles are sent electronically and are accessed via your ILLiad account (described below). When they are available you will be contacted via the email address you list within your ILLiad account. Please note: All articles sent electronically to the patron’s ILLiad account automatically expire after 30 days.

All other materials will be available at the library's Information & Services Desk for check out.

  • ILLiad: Self-service portal for making Interlibrary Loan requests. Click on "First Time Users Click Here" on the login page to create an Illiad account. Additionally, community members must establish a community borrower account when they pick up requested books in the library
  • Check our library before you order: Before you submit a request for an item from another library, please check our holdings first. Use the Library Catalog search in Primo to find the books, electronic books, and media materials that we offer. The Everything search in Primo will allow you access material from most of the JCC Databases including articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers.

The following search tools will help you search for materials in other libraries. Once you locate the materials place a request for the materials using ILLiad.

  • IDS Search This interface is set to search both our holdings and the holdings of our Information Delivery Services partner libraries. Materials ordered from other libraries (signified by the "Get It Now" button) are requested via ILLiad and usually arrive in just a few days.
  • OCLC WorldCat WorldCat is the world's largest online catalog. Once you locate the book, click the "ILL" icon near the top of the page and follow the directions for placing the request.
  • DueNorth Northern New York's regional book catalog, containing records for the holdings of the region's academic, public, school, and special libraries. Please do not attempt to request books via DueNorth, use Illiad

Renewals and late returns:

  • To renew online, log into your ILLiad account. Under "Checked Out Items", click onto the transaction number and choose "Renew Request".
  • Lost or damaged items will be charged to your library account according to the amount that the lending library charges.
  • Repeated late returns may result in a loss of interlibrary loan privileges.
