Updates to Interlibrary Loan and Connect NY Services

Updates to Interlibrary Loan and Connect NY Services

The library had reopened as of August 13th and some of our Interlibrary Loan services have resumed as well. Please see below for more details.

  • Connect NY will resume operations on August 17th. However, not all Connect NY institutions are participating at this time so materials from those institutions will not be available.
  • Interlibrary Loan has resumed full operations. However, since a number of libraries are still closed, it is harder to find lenders and thus processing times are longer. If you request materials through Interlibrary Loan please be prepared for longer turnaround times and consider submitting requests earlier.

What is Connect NY?

Connect NY is the best option for making an interlibrary loan request for books. Connect NY is a group of academic libraries in New York State that have created a joint catalog and a system of patron direct-requesting that is integrated into our on-line catalog.

Requests for books that can be fulfilled through ConnectNY generally arrive within 3 business days.

Who May Use Connect NY?

Connect NY is available to all patrons affiliated with Le Moyne College who have an active library account.  Be aware that any fines or overdues on your account may block your ability to submit requests.

How Long Can I keep a Book from Connect NY?

The loan period is 42 days from the day you check out the book.  In addition, each book is eligible for one 42 day renewal.

Note: Be aware that these loan periods are the same for everyone.  Connect NY books are not eligibile for extended loan periods for faculty, graduate, or honors  students.

Can I Check the Status of my Connect NY Request?

Yes, Through My Library Account on the library's home page.

What if I have an Overdue Connect NY Book?

If an item is not returned within 30 days of the due date or is lost a $100 fine ($75 replacement cost plus $25 processing fee) is automatically issued.  At this point, your borrowing privileges will be suspended.  If the item is returned promptly, the fine is reduced to $10.00, and your borrowing privileges will be reinstated.  If the item is not returned, replacement costs will be determined by the lending library and may be more or less than $100, depending on the actual cost of the book.
