Interlibrary Loan & Hold Requests

InterLibrary Loan Services provides access to library materials not owned by your campus library. All Valencia students, faculty and staff who are eligible to borrow materials from the Valencia library are eligible to use Interlibrary Loan services.

Hold Requests may be placed on currently checked-out materials that are owned by your campus library.


For items owned within the Florida College System: In the Library Catalog (LINCCWeb), click on the Request link found in the record for the item you wish to borrow; follow instructions.

For items not owned within the Florida College System: Use the FirstSearch databases to search for materials. Click on the ILL button found in the record for the item you wish to borrow; follow instructions.

  • One to two weeks for materials requested from libraries outside the Florida College system.

Hold Requests

Time required for checked-out Valencia materials placed on hold varies depending on the due date and the timely return of materials by the current borrower.

Library staff will contact the user by Valencia e-mail when your item arrives and becomes available.

Loan periods are determined by the lending library.

Return items to the Check-Out Desk.

Interlibrary loan materials are subject to the same fines as materials owned by Valencia.
