Who may borrow books?
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].
Reserve items are set aside by a professor for students or upon request by a division as a special collection by select authors that students should be aware of in their major and area of study. Reserve items circulate for 2 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.
