If you need materials that are not available from any of the RCCD College libraries, you can request an Interlibrary Loan.There may be a cost to you for this service since many libraries charge the borrowing library to cover shipping and handling costs. Talk to the on-duty Librarian to get the details. This service is not available to students.
Another option that is free and fast is to order through the Riverside Public Library using their Link+ system. This service lets Riverside Public Library card holders order books free from other Link+ libraries (including Loma Linda University and La Sierra University). Books can be ordered online through the RPL Online Catalog and usually arrive within 3-4 days. You can also visit a member library and check out books directly from them with your RPL library card. These books cannot be returned to an RCC library. Find out more about the Link+ service.
