ILL & Doc Delivery

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery

In order to provide resources for all students, faculty and staff in their academic and scholarly endeavors, we offer Interlibrary Loan (ILL) & Document Delivery (Doc Del) services that allow students and scholars to borrow resources not found in Buhl from other libraries.

Who can use Interlibrary Loan and/or Document Delivery Services?

These services are only for current GCC students, faculty, and staff, and Emeritus Faculty. Town patrons are expected to utilize the Grove City Community Library's services.

What is the difference between ILL & Doc Del?

ILL (Interlibrary Loan) is when we borrow books from other libraries. We do so at the generosity of the lending library.

Doc Del ( Document Delivery) is when the library obtains copies of journal articles and/or conference proceedings that are not available via our online databases or journal subscriptions. You must have your professor's signature for funding.  All items are subject to copyright permission and you must agree to copyright compliance on the request form (We will NOT process requests without this).

*** For faculty and staff only:   We will accept document delivery and interlibrary loan requests by email as long as you submit a full citation. Each time you request a document delivery by email, remember to indicate your agreement with the copyright compliance statement. We will NOT process your request without it.
