Palomar College Learning For Success

Order Requests

The Library relies heavily on the suggestions and requests of Faculty for the development of its print, non-print, and electronic collection of resources. If you would like the Library to acquire a specific book, periodical, media item, online database, or other resource for our collection, reserve a film for showing in one of your classes, receive a donation, add a link to an Internet resource on the Library web site, or borrow items from another institution, please let us know. Below is a guide for who to contact, as well as brief summaries of the processes.

Interlibrary Loans

For interlibrary loans consult the main ILL page for details. We accept requests submitted using our online forms.
