ILL basic information:

  • You must have an eligible TRL library card to place ILL requests.
    • A patron must be a resident of the Timberland library district with a Regular Timberland card, a non-resident with a paid non-resident card, or a Timberland employee using their Regular Timberland card.
    • Non-residents with cards based on reciprocal borrowing agreements will not receive ILL service, but will be referred back to their home libraries. Reciprocal borrowers are not eligible to submit ILL or purchase requests. Internet card holders are not eligible to submit ILL or purchase requests.
  • You may have up to 5 ILL requests at a time (ILL requests count toward your total 25 item holds).
  • Requests will not be accepted from patrons whose accounts are blocked.
  • TRL will not request the same item for the same patron within a 6-month period if the original request was filled. Unfilled requests may be re-submitted within that period.
  • An institutional TRL Library card may not be used for ILL service. This includes Timberland Branch cards. An individual patron’s card may be used on behalf of an organization or institution.
  • TRL district residents may ask that ILL materials be mailed to them if they qualify to have other Timberland materials mailed. Non-residents who have paid the service fee will not receive ILL items by mail. ILLs will not be mailed outside of the library district.
  • ILL requests for items that are less than a year old will not be accepted.
