Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service that allows current Cuesta students and employees to borrow a book or article from another library if that item is not available through Cuesta Library. Cuesta's ILL services are usually free to borrowers if materials are available at one of our partner libraries. Delivery of digital articles can be quick, but average time to receive requested materials is 1-2 weeks. Books usually take longer than articles to arrive. For questions about interlibrary loan, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you need sources right away, consider reaching out to a Cuesta librarian at either campus library or online at Ask a Librarian. In addition to print materials, our collection contains thousands of eBooks, videos and articles that are instantly available online. We're happy to help you locate the sources you need.
Cal Poly has a large selection of subscription databases. As a Cuesta student, you are able to access Cal Poly's databases from within their Kennedy Library. You may also email and/or print articles there. Also, you can check out books from Kennedy Library with your current Cuesta registration or ASCC photo ID.
