First Time User Registration for Interlibrary Loan or Suggest A Title

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is used to borrow older materials for our customers that are not owned by Loudoun County Public Library. Suggest A Title (SAT) is used to suggest that Loudoun County Public Library purchase titles not currently in our catalog. The first step before requesting an ILL or SAT is to check the LCPL catalog to verify that we, in fact, do not own the item. Only one registration is required to use both of these services.
