Interlibrary Loan

Due to COVID-19, there is an interruption in service with Interlibrary Loan across the country. Though we will attempt to fulfill requests, most libraries have suspended ILL services until further notice and we cannot guarantee we will be able to fulfill requests. When you submit a request, as usual, we will be in contact with you. Contact us at library@swccd.edu with any questions.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service by which Southwestern College students, staff, and faculty can obtain materials not available in Southwestern College holdings. The service is limited to current Southwestern College students, faculty, and staff.

Please allow a minimum arrival time of 14 days for book title ILL requests and 7 days for periodical ILL requests.

ILL Request Forms

Please do not request books and periodicals we have in our current library collection, or books that have been published within the past year, these are violations of existing agreements.

There is no charge for ILL if your request is directly related to academic research. However, any fines for overdue or lost items will be the responsibility of the borrower.  

For more information, contact the ILL Librarian at (619) 482-6346 or the Reference Desk at (619) 421-6700 x5381.
