It's possible that the other libraries will not lend materials for a variety of reasons, including:
- it is located in a non-loanable collection, like archives or rare materials
- recently published materials may have local waiting lists to fulfill before the other library fulfills interlibrary loan requests
- their copy is missing or damaged
- you (the requestor) indicated that you will not accept non-English language materials, and the library's only available document is written in a language other than English
- you indicated that you would not pay for the item or that you would not pay above a certain price point, and the other library wants to charge a higher fee for providing it
Knight-Capron Library works with all libraries in the OCLC consortium and will request items until many avenues are exhausted. If you received a notice that your interlibrary loan request was canceled, please identify the transaction # and contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional questions.
