Interlibrary Loan (ILL) of materials from other libraries

If you want a book or periodical article that is not available at the SCC Library, we can usually get it for you through interlibrary loan. We'll locate a library that owns the item then get it sent to the SCC Library for you. (Keep in mind that it could take several days for an item to arrive, so start your research early.) To request an item through interlibrary loan, contact the SCC Library.

Partner libraries

The SCC Library participates in a cooperative of Inland Northwest libraries. You can use your SCC student ID card to borrow books from libraries at:

  • Gonzaga University
  • North Idaho College
  • Lewis-Clark State College
