Before placing a Marina request
How to place a Marina request
Reviewing your Marina requests:
Select 'My Account' from the profile menu in the upper right.
Marina requests will not appear in your CCPL account requests list until the item has been received at CCPL. Check your Marina account or ask your local branch to determine the status of your request.
If you are unable to find materials via Marina, a request can be made to other public and academic libraries across the United States. Interlibrary Loan materials may take longer to arrive depending on availability and delivery methods.Materials that can be requested include books, article scans/copies, DVDs, audiobooks, and other types of resources; however, many institutions do not lend new materials. Some libraries charge a fee for Interlibrary Loan materials and you will be contacted prior to ordering for approval of any applicable fees. Fees are payable at the time of pick up. Please consult with a librarian at your local branch or email us to place an Interlibrary Loan request.
