Faculty Services

Instructor Reserves

Palomar faculty may place personal copies of books, articles, media, etc. in the library for reserved student use.

Instruction & Information Literacy

Palomar faculty are encouraged to use our online request forms to schedule an information literacy consultation or a library instruction session for their students.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If the library does not own the books or articles you need, it may be possible to get them from another library through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). You can now directly request books or articles NOT available from Palomar through our Library catalog (WorldCat Local).  You can also still use our email forms to request books and media or periodicals.


Palomar faculty may request ordering of books, periodicals, media, or online resources for the Library collection. The library has a selection policy which provides guidelines for how we select items for our collections. For more information, contact the the librarian subject specialist for your department.
