FAQ

What is interlibrary loan?

When materials are needed which the LCC Library does not own, we will attempt to borrow the items from other libraries.

Who can use it?

Interlibrary loan will be restricted to LCC faculty and thesis students. Wider availability will be reviewed later.

What kinds of materials can be obtained?

At present we will fill only requests for books which can be borrowed within Lithuania and Europe. Photocopies of periodical journals can also be requested.How much does it cost?

ILL service is free of charge.

How do I request a book?

Request forms and instructions for searching are available from the Reference Librarian or online. There are different forms for books and articles. Complete a separate form for each item requested including the complete citation.

How long does it take?

This depends on the location of the lending library and how they send it. Most books will come in 1-2 weeks.

Will I know when the book or article comes in?

You will be informed via email when the material arrives.

How long can I use the books?

The lending library decides how long you may keep it, usually 1-3 weeks.

Where can I use the books?

Interlibrary Loan books will be for use only in LCC Library. They will be held on a shelf in the reserve section behind the circulation desk and will have straps on showing your name and the due date. Let the Library staff know if you are finished with the book before the due date. Otherwise we will mail it back on the due date.
