Interlibrary Loan Policies and Procedures

Interlibrary loan service is available to obtain materials not owned by the CCC Library from other libraries and is available to current students, faculty, and staff.

  • Textbooks
  • Reference books
  • Rare, very old or fragile books
  • Computer software
  • Genealogical materials
  • Art prints or sculptures
  • Newspapers
  • Entire issues of periodicals

Copyright Restrictions

The copyright law of the United States (United States Code: Title 17) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Some material may not be available due to copyright restrictions. 

Loan Period

The loan period is determined by the lending library. The average loan period is approximately 2-4 weeks. The lending library may also impose restrictions on the use of their materials (such as no renewals, in library use only, and no photocopying). You must abide by the conditions of use as defined by the lending library.

Time Required

Plan ahead when requesting materials. Materials ordered through Interlibrary Loan arrive on average within 10-14 days, but may take longer depending on the speed of the lending library and the U.S. mail. Please take this into consideration when requesting material to ensure that you will receive the material when needed. 

Delivery and Return of Materials 

You will be notified by phone or e-mail when your material arrives at the Clovis Community College Library. You can pick up your materials at the CCC Library circulation desk. Please bring your CCC ID to check out your materials. 

It is the responsibility of the borrower to return Interlibrary Loan materials in a timely manner. All materials borrowed through Interlibrary Loan must be returned to the CCC Library by the due date. Fines and fees assessed by the lending library for overdue or replacement items are the responsibility of the patron who borrowed the item. Not returning Interlibrary Loan materials promptly may result in a loss of all library privileges. Note: The lending library reserves the right to recall their materials before the due date. In this case, the materials must be returned immediately. 

Overdue Fines and Penalties 

When an Interlibrary Loan item is overdue, the borrower will be charged a fine of $1.00 per day for every day past the due date. Replacement charges will be imposed (most available retail price) for grossly overdue, lost, or damaged items along with a processing fee from the lending library and a processing fee of $20.00 per item from Clovis Community College. All fines, fees, and replacement charges are non-refundable. Ultimately, failure to pay interlibrary loan fines, replacement charges, and processing fees may result in referral to a collection agency.
