Madigan Library Interlibrary staff borrow books, media, and articles from academic, public, and school libraries world-wide for PCT faculty, staff, students, and retirees. Requests are processed through Worldcat.

Requesting Materials

ILLiad is used to submit requests by completing an online form or through links in databases. The status of current requests can be monitored through ILLiad as well as the requesting of renewals.

Receiving Materials

An email will be sent when items are received. Books and media materials can be picked up at the library or, for distance learner, sent via U.S. mail. Articles can be posted to the web, which is accessible using ILLiad, sent as an email attachment, or printed to be picked up at the library.

Renewing Materials

To request an extension of the due date, log in to ILLiad and select Checked Out Items. From the list of checked out items, click on the Transaction Number of the item to be renewed. Click “Renew Request” displayed at the top of the record. If “Renew Request” does not display, an extension for that item is not an option. Once the request for an extension is approved, the ILLiad record will be updated to reflect the new due date.

Note: If the item is already overdue, it is not possible to request a renewal through ILLiad. For that situation, please contact to request an extension of the due date.

Materials Policy

The borrower is responsible for loaned material. Damaged or lost items must be paid for, at the cost charged by the lending library.
