About Interlibrary Loan

If you cannot find the title you need, we can usually borrow it from another library. Use the interlibrary loan form to request the titles you are looking for and library staff will work to get the materials delivered to your preferred campus location. The item will be borrowed through your Blackhawk Library Account. This service is available to current Blackhawk Technical College students, faculty, and staff.
