InterLibrary loan (ILL) is how we obtain materials for YVC students and staff that Raymond Library does not own. (We do not place ILLs for non-YVC affiliated individuals. ILL Requests by non-YVC individuals must be placed through your local public library or at your institution’s library.) In addition, we lend our materials to other libraries through ILL.If you are a Grandview student, the items you request will be sent to the Grandview Library. When possible,* items will be mailed to students enrolled in an eLearning course who do not live in the greater Yakima area or attend class at either the Grandview campus or the Yakima campus. Returning mailed ILLs is the responsibility of the borrower.
Enrollment in an eLearning course, other YVC courses, and address will be verified prior to mailing ILL requests.
Article requests usually take 3-5 days to arrive and books take 5-10 days to arrive. YVC does not charge for this service; however, if the lending library has a fee or charges for printing, you will be notified. You will need to pay the fee and/or charges prior to the ILL being submitted to the lending library.
