Interlibrary loan is a service provided to patrons to obtain materials which are not available within the Marion County Library System. Photocopies of source materials are acquired when appropriate and are governed by Copyright Law.
Access to materials through interlibrary loan facilitates collection development in the following ways:
- The library can provide items not in the library’s holdings.
- Items lost or missing from the collection and for which replacement is not an immediate possibility may be borrowed through interlibrary loan.
- Frequent requests for items not held in our collection provide information of use to staff members responsible for collection development. Non-recurrent requests of potential interest and relevance to collection development in areas of interest in our communities are also considered for permanent acquisition.
