Interlibrary Loan

Request books & journal articles outside of the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System.

This interlibrary loan form was down from December 16, 2023 – January 16, 2024.
If you submitted an interlibrary loan (request to borrow from outside of our library system), please resubmit.
We’re incredibly sorry. The issue has now been fixed.

Please be sure to search the System catalog first to confirm that we do not own the item
at one of our 38 member library building locations.

This form is only for titles not found in our catalog.
If you find the title in our catalog and it’s at one of our member libraries,
you can place the hold yourself or contact your library. 

We only interlibrary loan books and journal articles – no other format, no DVDs, no audiobooks.

Books must be published over 6 months to request.
Try placing a hold on new titles with your library as this title may be on order.
If your library does not purchase this title, please submit this form again after it has been 6 months from the publication date.
Libraries across the country will not loan titles that are 6 months to one year from the publication date.

Please note: It might take up to 6 weeks or longer to receive your item.

    Will you pay a $4.00 fee for an item located outside of the system? There will be no charge if the item is found within our system.(required)

    Will you accept an electronic edition of this item if available?

    Print this before you submit so you have a copy.
