InterLibrary Loan for Non-Traditional Students

Although it is the desire of the LPC Library to provide all the materials for our students, it is not possible in some situations. Our Non-traditional students (MASL, MACL, and DCP) are often working on different calendars or at a distance. Because of those issues, we cannot fulfill InterLibrary Loan requests for physical materials (book or some articles). In those cases, you will need to make other arrangements. It is recommended that you attempt the InterLibrary Loan through a local University or public library.
