About Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan services allow WVWC users to request materials not available through the Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library.  This includes scholarly articles, books, and more.

For questions about interlibrary loan, please contact the Interlibrary Loan Department.

FAQ

  • How do I log in to the interlibrary loan system?
  • Your WVWC email address is your username for interlibrary loan. . All interlibrary loan correspondence will be delivered to your WVWC email address.

    The first time you login you will need to reset your password. You do this by typing in your WVWC email as your username and then clicking on the set/reset password link below. An email will be sent to your WVWC email address providing instructions on changing your password.

  • How long will it take for my interlibrary loan item(s) to arrive?
  • Books can take up to 2 weeks to arrive. They usually arrive faster than that, but it is important to take this into consideration when making your request.
  • Articles usually arrive within the same week (often within a day or two of the request).  They are usually delivered electronically either to your ILL account or via email.
  • Can I renew my interlibrary loan books?
  • It all depends on the lending library – their books and their call.  Our ILL department must submit renewal requests to the lending library for approval. If you need a renewal, the request should be submitted to our ILL office (ILL@wvwc.edu) before the books are overdue.  You will be contacted by email informing you of whether the renewal has been approved or not.
  • The article on my interlibrary loan account disappeared, what happened?
  • Articles delivered electronically to our interlibrary loan account are only available for downloading for 30 days.
  • The status of my request is "canceled".  Why was my request canceled?
  • Your request was probably canceled for one of the following reasons:
    • It was a duplicate request.
    • The item was found in our own library.
    • All possible lenders were exhausted without any filling the request.
    • In all of these circumstances you should have received an email to the address you have entered when you created your ILL account to explain the reason.

About Course Reserves

Reserve at Annie Merner Pfeiffer Library is a place for faculty members to put items on reserve so their students may have access during the time the Library is open.

Electronic reserve is provided through Blackboard.  The Library staff can scan an item and upload it to Blackboard or more likely email it to the professor for them to upload to the class content.

Physical course reserves are items such as books, DVDs, videos, and equipment.  Faculty reserve items are restricted to the students enrolled in that course.

FAQ

  • How much of a book can I scan?  
    • 10% is all you can use and still be in compliance with the Fair Use Act.
  • How many copies can I put on reserve?  
    • 1 copy per 15 students  
  • Can I put personal copies on reserve?  
    • Yes, but if the library also has a copy of it, we will put ours on instead.
  • Can I put Netflix DVDs on reserve?
    • No.  Netflix is intended for private home viewing.
  • I want to put this textbook on reserve so that my students won’t have to purchase it. Is that ok?  
    • NO!!!!!  This is a direct violation of Fair Use in the world of Copyright Law.
  • How long does it take to get something put on reserve?  
    • We will make every effort to get it on as soon as possible, but a 3-day head start is recommended.  For example, 4:30 is not the greatest time to bring something that your students are required to read that evening.
