Interlibrary Services

The services of Interlibrary Loan are intended to support learning, teaching, research, and scholarship and are offered only to Westchester Community College students, faculty and staff. Interlibrary loans involve expenditure of state and college funds. The Library reserves the right to review patron requests for ILL services and to decline such requests at the Library’s sole discretion. As is the case with all other Library services, patrons are expected to comply with copyright in their use of materials obtained through Interlibrary Loan.
