Can I borrow directly from local libraries?
If the material needed is available in SUNY Plattsburgh's Feinberg Library Catalog, CCC students, faculty and staff have direct borrowing privileges and can check out circulating materials. Bring your CCC ID and an additional picture ID to Feinberg Library to get a free library card.
If the material needed is available in Plattsburgh Public Library's Catalog, all residents of Clinton, Essex or Franklin counties can borrow circulating materials. Bring ID and proof of residence to the public library to get a free library card.
You can also search the ICEPAC catalog to see if your local library in northern New York has the material you need - just choose your library from the drop down meu.
Interlibrary Loan services are available to CCC students, faculty and staff who need materials that are not available in the Douglas Library's print or online collections. NOTE: Interlibrary loan is not an alternative to purchasing a textbook or other required book for a class. Use your ILLiad account to submit interlibrary loan requests online, track the status of your requests, and request renewals for interlibrary loan materials. To create an ILLiad account, select "First Time Users."
Before placing an interlibrary loan request:
- Search EBSCO Discovery to find articles, books, DVDs and more. (New to EBSCO Discovery? See "Tips for Searching EBSCO Discovery.") If a result displays the option to "Request item through interlibrary loan," you will be prompted to login to your ILLiad account.
You may prefer to search E-journals by Title to see which journals, magazines and newspapers are accessible online and the years that are available.
You can also search the SUNY Union Catalog, a catalog of items in SUNY libraries, and submit interlibrary loan requests through the SUNY Union catalog. Choosing the option to "Request item" will prompt you to login to your ILLiad account.
It's still possible to search the Library Catalog to see if a book or DVD is owned by the Douglas Library.
NOTE: Are you only taking online classes? If so, any interlibrary loan materials that cannot be delivered electronically can be shipped to you. When submitting an interlibrary loan request in ILLiad, please indicate in the "Notes" field that you are only taking online classes and list your mailing address.
