Interlibrary Loan Policy

In order to expand access to library resources, Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) is available to library patrons. Books, magazine and newspaper articles, and other materials not owned by the Paul Pratt Memorial Library and not available through the Old Colony Library Network (OCLN) may be requested by submitting an ILL request online (link below). Requests may also be submitted in person at the library’s Reference and Circulation desks.

ILL requests submitted to Paul Pratt Memorial Library by our library patrons are forwarded to the Southeastern Massachusetts Regional Library System’s (SEMLS) designated mediated ILL centers. When items arrive, patrons are notified by telephone or email. Materials owned by the Paul Pratt Memorial Library are made available to patrons of other libraries when requested by the designated mediated ILL centers.

Terms of borrowing:

Adopted by the Paul Pratt Memorial Board of Trustees, May 9, 2007
