Need a book or article not owned by CalArts or even one that is currently on loan to another patron? We can usually get it for you from another library. To request an item on Interlibrary
Loan, search the CalArts WorldCat Local to find the item, select the item, and then select the “Request Item through Interlibrary
You will be notified when the item arrives at the CalArts Library via email. Please note that we may not be able to fill your request due to availability and restrictions at our borrowing library sources. If we cannot accommodate your ILL request, please see a librarian for referral to other possible research sources.
All patrons are limited to five Interlibrary Loan requests per week. Alumni, visiting artists and other guest borrowers are not granted ILL privileges.
Interlibrary loan services are provided free of charge in almost all
instances. That being said, we do need to return items to the lending libraries in a timely manner in order for us to maintain our borrowing privileges. Therefore, a late return fee of $1/day will be incurred if the item is late.
The Santa Clarita Inter-Library Network (SCILNET) also offers direct
interlibrary loans among the public and school libraries in our valley. If you need something that is at a local library ask for a SCILNET card from the Circulation Supervisor at the Circulation Desk.
