Requests for books that the library does not own can be placed through an interlibrary loan (ILL) request. The library will reopen August 17, 2020. At that time we will be able to facilitate physical and digital delivery services for our patrons.
* In order to enable staff to handle the increased traffic, our resourse sharing partners have decided to limit ILL requests to 5 active requests per person for physical items (This is part of the restart and most likely will change soon).
You can place a request for any book you want, if we are able to find a partner library that is willing to lend us the book, and it will come to you in 5 days (on average). Please check our catalog first to make sure we don't already have it!
To fill out a blank request,use this form.
If you would like to request a physical book you will need to enter the title, author, and it can be helpful if you enter the ISBN. Digital ILL requests require more information and if you enter this information your request will be more likely to be filled. For digital books we ask that you fill out the pages and it can be helpful if you know the chapter you would like to read. Please add this information at the time of your request. If your request was denied, please consider adding this information and try submitting your request a second time.
Digial ILL requests will either be emailed directly to your MCAD email or an email will be sent to you with instructions on how to access the pdf article. There may be a set number of times and duration of time the login and password will work to access your ILL item. You can also check your record in the catalog to check on the status of your request.
