Interlibrary Loan

There will be books or media you need that Lincoln Library does not own, and occasionally OhioLINK's databases will not provide the full text of a journal article you need.  In that case all current LEC students, faculty and staff may request these items from other libraries, free of charge.  This is called Interlibrary Loan, or ILL for short.


Always begin your search for journal articles at the Library's Finding Articles page, which is your guide to OhioLINK's online databases.  However, if you need articles that are not available in full text through OhioLINK, you may order them by going to our ORDER ARTICLES web form, filling in the information and clicking Submit. Your request will be processed by the ILL Librarian and within a few days you will receive an email that either has the article attached or that tells you the article may be picked up at the library's circulation desk.


Go to the OhioLINK Library Catalog for college-level books and media.

Go to the SearchOhio Catalog for popular literature, movies and music.

To request items from either catalog: 

  • Click the green Request button beside the item's title
  • Select Lake Erie College as your institution at the next screen
  • Fill in your last name and LEC ID number at the next screen and click Request to complete the transaction
The item you've requested will be delivered to our campus within days.  When it arrives you will receive an email telling you that it may be picked up at the library's circulation desk.

You can access your My Library account to see what you have requested and the status of each item. There is a My Library Logon link in the left column of the library's web pages.
