ILL Journal Request Form

Cerro Coso students, faculty, and staff may use this form to place requests for the interlibrary loan of materials not available in the Cerro Coso library collection. If the journal article is available locally, the average turn around time is three days to one week; otherwise, it can take two weeks or longer to fill the request. Please check the journal listings as appropriate before requesting materials.

Community members (non-Cerro Coso Community students, faculty or staff) wishing to borrow materials from libraries outside the IWV must place their requests through their own local servicing libraries.


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain provisions specified in the law, libraries and other archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or the reproduction. One of these conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." If the user makes request for and later uses a copy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user may be liable for copyright infringement.

The Cerro Coso Library reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violations of copyright law.
