Intra-Library Loan (ILL) with LACCD Libraries (or Holds)
Intra-Library loan, or ILL, borrows books that the ELAC Libraries do not own or carry in print, but are available at another District College's Library. (Please note that our district does not participate in Interlibrary Loan, which borrows books from Libraries outside of our district.)
Intra-Library Loan is available to all LACCD students, faculty, and staff.
Patrons will receive an email notification once a book arrives and is available for check out. You will pick up material(s) at the circulation desk on the first floor. Items will be held for seven days.
LACCD students can borrow up to ten regular circulating books from any library in the LACCD.
You can borrow books for up to 28 days (No renewals allowed).
Only general collection circulating books can be requested through the ILL/Holds process.
Materials that are not available for ILL include the following:
Audio visual materials
DVD requests can only be placed between ELAC's Monterey Park Campus Library and the South Gate Campus Libraries.
We make our best effort to help you place the request, but it is at the discretion of the holding library to fulfill it.
