Request Materials

The Library offers a variety of ways to help you get the materials you need. Materials can be:

  • Placed on hold and delivered from other MiraCosta College Campus Libraries - Oceanside, San Elijo, and CLC,
  • Requested through InterLibrary Loan (ILL), which allows you to request materials from libraries outside of MiraCosta College, or
  • Suggested for purchase by submitting an online form. 

Place Hold

Holds may be placed on library material using the Place Hold feature in the Library catalog. Patrons may arrange to have materials sent to the Oceanside campus, San Elijo campus, or the Community Learning Center (CLC). However, holds may not be placed on Reference items or items on Course Reserve. Visit our Borrowing page for directions, or contact the Oceanside Circulation Desk (760) 795-6715 or San Elijo Circulation Desk (760) 634-7850.

InterLibrary Loan (ILL)

If a book or periodical article you need is not in the MiraCosta College Library collection, we will be happy to attempt to obtain it for you from another library. There is currently no charge for this service; For this reason, we do reserve the right to limit the number of items we can request for you at one time.

Please complete and submit the appropriate form, and we will contact you if we have any questions. Otherwise you will be contacted when the item arrives at the MiraCosta College Library.
