Interlibrary Loan

Use your Centre library account to enter requests for books and articles not carried by our library!

Your Centre College network account automatically provides you a library account with interlibrary loan access!

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service provided by The Grace Doherty Library to the students, faculty, and staff of Centre College* to obtain material that is not available in our library. With some rare exceptions, there is no charge for this service! Books, photocopies from journals (subject to copyright restrictions), some dissertations, and microfilm can be obtained through Interlibrary Loan.

To contact ILL, send an email to or call 238-5279. Or visit the Circulation desk from 4pm-12am Sunday-Thursday during the academic year (Monday-Friday, 8:30am to 4:30 pm during breaks).

* All non-Centre College users, including those with library borrower cards, should contact their local public library to obtain Interlibrary Loan service.

Please check the Library Online Catalog to verify library holdings before submitting an Interlibrary Loan request.
