Interlibrary Loan Changes during PPLD’s Phased Reopening:
- Item limit changed – Due to staffing restrictions related to the State's safer-at-home order, maintaining the current number of requests is not feasible. Therefore, we are decreasing the number of Interlibrary Loans requests to three per Library card.
- Anticipate increased wait time – We expect requests to take longer to fulfill (borrowing or purchasing), with a potential wait time of four to eight weeks.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and Purchase Requests have been combined and are now called Request It.
New to ILL and Purchase Requests?
- Set up a Request It account. Enter your PPLD library card number (your card needs to start with a number “4”) and PIN to register.
Already have an ILL account?
- Apart from a few labels, ILL has not changed.
- Purchase Requests will now be done using WorldCat and your Request It account (formerly ILL account).
