ILLiad (Interlibrary Loan)

If there are books and/or articles that you need that are not available at BCC or any other CUNY college library, you can request that title by using ILLiad, the library’s automated interlibrary loan system. This service is available to faculty, students and staff in good standing (no fines). Many items requested may be obtained in one to two weeks, if they are available locally; some requests may take a little longer.

If you requested an article, it will be delivered to your email.

If you requested a book, you will receive an email when it arrives. At that time, it will be available for pick up at the circulation desk. The check out period and conditions of use are set by the lending library.
