Who may borrow books?
Reserve items are set aside for a specific purpose – usually by a professor for students of a particular class. Use the “Reserve List” function in the library catalog to identify items by either the professor’s name or the course number. 3 Reserve items may be charged out at 1 time. Reserve items circulate for two hours and cannot be removed from the library unless otherwise specified. Valid identification or driver’s license must be left at the Circulation Desk until the items are returned.
Audiovisual materials circulate under the same terms as Reserve items, and cannot be taken outside of the library, unless by ECC faculty and staff. Valid identification is required for borrowing materials.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a free way that books, eBooks, articles the library does not own can be requested from other libraries, and provided to our users. This process can take up to a week, depending on the material. You can submit an ILL request at [email protected].
