Students, faculty, and staff have the ability to borrow books from both other Maricopa libraries and from outside the Maricopa library district. This service can vastly expand the informational reach of the GCC community and allow students, faculty, and staff to obtain a wealth of educational resources. Below, are descriptions on how to obtain resources both at the Maricopa district level and beyond.

If the books are in the libraries of the Maricopa Community College District...

To begin searching for books out side of the GCC Library. Click on the Find Books tab on the GCC Library Search Box, then select Maricopa on the radio buttons below. From there, you can enter titles, authors, and subjects you wish to find.

After you select this icon, you will be asked to log in with your MEID username and password. Upon doing so, you will select the library in which you would like to pick up your book. After a few days, the book will arrive at the circulation desk of your selected library for pick up. You can always check the status of your request by looking at your account.

Requesting a book (and even an article) from outside the Maricopa Community College District...

You will begin by going to the Illiad Interlibrary Loan form:

Illiad Interlibrary Loan Form

Submit your book request by filling out the Interlibrary Loan form. If you have not created an InterLibrary Loan account, you will need to do this by clicking on the new-account button on the linked page (above) before submitting your book request. If you need any assistance in setting up your ILLiad account, please contact the library.

You will need to provide as much information about the book as possible. Also, you will need to allow a minimum of two weeks before we receive any books not in the community college system.

Obtaining Articles Through Illiad...

To obtain periodical articles that are not available in GCC's library you will need to complete the request form - use the "photocopy" section. Again, provide as much information about the item as possible. Ask the librarian to help you if necessary. Incomplete information will delay processing.

If you have any questions, please visit our Ask A Librarian Help Page
