Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan

Our interlibrary loan service offers you the ability to borrow materials not owned by the Camden County Library System. You may also request photocopies of magazine/journal articles not owned by the Camden County Library System.

When you place an interlibrary loan request, we will try to borrow the item or obtain a photocopy for you from another library. We will notify you when the item arrives, or if we are unable to fill your request.

Please note: On the average, materials arrive within 2-6 weeks. The amount of time varies and is dependent on the item, its location and delivery method. While we make every effort to satisfy all requests, the attainment of material is contingent on availability and on lending policies of libraries throughout the country.

To request an item through Interlibrary Loan, please use our online forms. Printed forms are also available at all branches.

Before sending an interlibrary loan request, please note:

Have you checked our catalog?

Avoid requesting motion pictures that have not been released for general distribution.  In most instances records for feature films going out for general distribution will be put in our catalog one month before the DVD becomes available for release to the public.  You can then request the item through the catalog.
