Interlibrary Loan

Borrowing From Other Libraries

PCOM faculty, students, and staff who require access to materials not owned or licensed by the Library may request loans from other libraries.

Please provide all available bibliographic information. Incomplete citations result in delays. Do not use abbreviations.

Submit the following Request Forms electronically, deliver them to the Circulation Desk, or use LinkSource to generate requests.

Request Forms

When you are searching a PCOM-licensed database, take advantage of Linksource-generated ILL forms to request articles not available through the Library web site. LinkSource displays a request form populated with the journal name and volume. Complete the form with page numbers and your personal information and submit electronically. The LinkSource icon changes depending on the database.

in PubMed in EBSCOhost (Academic Search, AltMed, IPA, PsycINFO, etc.), Linkto@PCOM in Google Scholar.

Turnaround Time
Every effort is made to deliver materials in a timely fashion. Eighty percent of articles are received within a week. Clinical Rushes for patient care may be acquired within hours. For book requests not available through E-ZBorrow, please allow 2 weeks; they may be difficult to find and must be shipped (not transmitted electronically). You can check on the status of your journal requests with the Circulation Desk staff.

Receipt & Date Due
You will be called or e-mailed when a book is available for pick-up. Please note the due date on books and return them to the Circulation Desk before or on that date.

Interlibrary Loan services are provided to library users at no cost.
