Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is an agreement among participating libraries to make certain materials, books, dissertations, journal articles, etc., available to member libraries upon request. This agreement for “resource sharing” gives library patrons access to far more materials than any one library could hold. The Ogeechee Technical College Library Media Center searches its own collection first and then searches the WorldCat database to locate and borrow materials owned by other US, Canadian and European libraries. Some material may not be available for request since many loans are based on the lending institution lending policy.

To request materials from Interlibrary Loan, complete the online Interlibrary Loan Request form at the following links: Book Request Form, Article Request Form. Interlibrary loan material will be ordered on a first come first serve basis. Materials may be requested in person at the circulation desk.


Intercampus Borrowing

Intercampus borrowing is a service available to all OTC faculty, staff, and students. Patrons from the main campus and other off-site locations may borrow circulating materials from the Main location. To request materials, students can use our Intercampus Borrowing Request Form.
