Interlibrary Loan Procedures
Inter-Library Loan (ILL) is a service that supports the mission of Great Basin College Library by providing enhanced access to and delivery of research and instructional materials. The purpose of ILL is to obtain material not available (i.e., material not owned, currently signed out, or missing) in the Great Basin College Library and to provide material from Great Basin College Library collection to other libraries. This service is governed by the Inter-Library Loan Code for the United States and the Copyright Law, Title 17, US Code.
Students, staff, and faculty of Great Basin College and Elko County school district members with a current Great Basin College or University of Nevada, Reno library card are eligible to request an interlibrary loan.
BOOKS may be requested by using the GBC Library Online ILL Form for Books or by printing a copy of the page from the online catalog and taking it to the circulation desk in the Library. Borrowers may request up to three (3) books at a time and will be contacted via telephone or e-mail when material arrives. It takes approximately 7-10 days to fill requests. Items will be held for 2 weeks at the circulation desk. Books are checked out for one month and cannot be renewed. Patrons who do not return ILL books when due will receive a written notice requesting return of the items. If items are not returned within 30 days of the written notice, a fine of $5.00 per book per day (up to and including the price of the book plus a $5.00 processing fee) will be charged to the patron's library record from the date of the written notice until the items are returned. A stop will be placed on the patron's student records until the fines are paid.
JOURNAL ARTICLES may be requested by using the GBC Library Online ILL Form for Journal Articles.
