Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service of the Circulation Department. Its purpose is to obtain materials which are not available in Pickler Memorial Library and to loan circulating materials requested by other libraries. Conditions of this service are governed by the National Interlibrary Loan Code (adopted by the American Library Association) and the Copyright Law, Title 17, U.S. Code.
Who May Borrow
Interlibrary Loan Services are available to Truman faculty, students, and staff at no charge. Those holding a valid Faculty/Staff Designated Guest Card will be charged $5.00 per filled request. This fee will be added to their Library Account when the items arrive. Others should use the services of their own public library.
The lending library sets the loan period and any restrictions on the use of the materials. It is important that books are returned on time to maintain good relationships among libraries.
Renewal of Interlibrary Loan materials is subject to the lending library’s policy. To request a renewal, bring the item(s) into the Interlibrary Loan Office. Requests for renewals should be submitted before the items are overdue.
If books are not returned promptly, the user will be billed $125.00 (minimum) for replacement costs. This applies to all users.
