Any College of Charleston faculty, staff, or
student with a valid library card can submit ILL requests except for: students with delinquent loans, overdue fines, or those enrolled non-credit courses; spouses or children; alumni; special patrons; or
Undergraduates are limited to five outstanding requests at one time.
Graduates are limited to ten. Graduate assistants should submit
requests for themselves in their own name. Requests for faculty should
be under the faculty member's name. Requests are processed in the order
received. Requests are not accepted by telephone.
"Need By" Dates
Given that ILL can sometimes take two weeks or more, we ask that you
inform us if you are working under a deadline. Normally, if no need by
date is supplied we will submit a request to ten different libraries
before contacting you again. Unless we are notified otherwise, requests
for undergraduates will be cancelled at the end of the semester.
We do not borrow items listed in our catalog unless they are declared
lost or checked out. Lending libraries determine what materials they
will photocopy or loan. The following materials often are not available
periods and renewals are determined by the lending library. Borrowers,
including faculty, can expect to keep most returnables for two to four
weeks. Researchers should make every effort to complete their work with
ILL material within the original loan period. If a renewal becomes
necessary, use your ILLiad account to request such before the item is due. Only one renewal per item can be requested. Please note that all ILL returnables are subject
to immediate recall by the lending institution.
ability to borrow from other libraries is dependent on our past
performance with returned items. When patrons keep ILL materials beyond
the due date, they jeopardize our ability to borrow from that library. This can effect our ability to obtain materials for everyone here at the College of Charleston.
lending library also establishes the conditions under which borrowed
material may be used. Some items may be restricted for use in our
library only, photocopying may be prohibited, etc. A borrower's failure
to comply with the conditions of a loan could jeopardize his or her
interlibrary loan privileges and can effect our ability to obtain materials for everyone here at the College of Charleston.
Addlestone Library pays all normal shipping, photocopying, lending and
service fees for interlibrary loan. Users of ILL services are
responsible for any fines and/or replacement costs arising from their
requests, as well as any copyright charges exceeding $50.00.
lending libraries will allow one renewal of borrowed material. Renewals
must be requested before the item is due. Use your ILLiad account to
request a renewal. The Interlibrary Loan staff will contact you if the
due date is not extended by the lending institution.
all ILL materials directly to the Interlibrary Loan office or to the
Reference Desk on or before the date due. Items obtained through ILL
should not be returned to the Circulation Desk or placed in the library
book drop. However, all campus delivery books etc. must be returned to the Circulation Desk.
They will be checked out to you through the library's circulation system.
Recalled materials should be returned immediately.
failure to return ILL materials in a timely manner may result in
suspension of an individual's interlibrary loan privileges.
loan policies at the Grice Marine Biological Laboratory vary slightly
from those of the Addlestone Library. The Marine Resources Library only
processes interlibrary loan requests from Grice faculty and marine
biology graduate students. All requests, including those for items held
at Grice, should be requested through your ILLiad account.
