Interlibrary Loan Policy for Mohawk Valley Community College
Interlibrary loan service provides materials for the study and research needs of the college community by obtaining from other libraries needed items that are not available at MVCC libraries. Faculty, staff, and students who are registered for the current term may use the service. There are no fees charged to users for this service.
The following materials cannot be borrowed or lent through Interlibrary Loan:
Library users request items by providing the full citation in an online request form. Users are notified when a requested item has been received or if the item is not available through interlibrary loan. Upon presentation of proper identification, users may pick up books at the library circulation desk. Articles are delivered electronically and may be downloaded or printed for personal use, as governed by copyright law (Title 17, U.S. Code).
The lending library determines the loan period for requested items. The lending library has the right to recall loans at any time or to deny a renewal.
Borrowers will be charged a replacement fee for items which are not returned or that are returned damaged. A hold will be placed on an individual’s account and interlibrary loan services will be suspended until the items are returned or the fines are paid.
