CBC Library Interlibrary Loan Procedure
Interlibrary loans may be requested when materials required for CBC academic or college-related purposes are not available at the CBC library. Requests are only accepted from currently registered CBC students, faculty, or staff who are also registered CBC Library borrowers. Materials are borrowed through a voluntary cooperative agreement between libraries and other lending institutions in the United States and Canada. The Washington State Interlibrary Sharing Code and U.S. Copyright Law define and restrict this agreement.
Some institutions charge the CBC Library substantial fees for an interlibrary loan, and there are always processing and mailing or transmission expenses. It is currently the policy of CBC Library to bear all costs for interlibrary loans. Most lending institutions grant a three-week loan with a one-time two-week renewal. Requesters are responsible for checking out their materials promptly and either returning them on time or asking for renewal well before the due date. The borrower must pay any overdue fines and fees for repair or replacement. Please note that failure to return materials on time will jeopardize the CBC Library's ability to secure interlibrary loans in the future.
Interlibrary loan requests are processed promptly by CBC staff. However, it frequently takes the other libraries as much as three-four weeks to respond. If the responding library cannot locate the requested materials, the delay can be even longer. Requesters with a short deadline may wish to purchase needed materials from a document-delivery service. The library staff can assist with such requests and inform the requester of the current holdings and fees of the services we use. Document-delivery service may be requested only for CBC students, faculty, and staff.
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code), governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order, if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
