Frequently Asked Questions

Requesting Materials from Other Libraries

You'll occasionally find a book or an article that the Merced College Library does not own or have access to through the databases.

We can ask another library to send us the book or the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). We will always try to get it for free, but the lending library might charge to make a copy of the article or to mail the book. Depending on the lending library, charges can range anywhere from $5 - $25. On the ILL PDFs, please mark if you are willing to pay if necessary, and how much.

The ILL PDFs have a submit button. If you use Internet Explorer as your browser, we will receive the form. If you are using Firefox or Chrome, please save the form, and then email it as an attachment to
