PIC goes Statewide!

The PIC collections are now available for free interlibrary loan to libraries in every county of Colorado.

As a new lender on the Colorado StateWide Interlibrary Fast Track (SWIFT) program, professionals throughout the state now have the choice of a) contacting the PIC directly, or b) requesting items from their local public, school, academic, or special library as an interlibrary loan request.

Approximately 400 library systems, districts, and networks will be able to borrow resources for free from the PIC, and many will be able to receive these items via a statewide library courier system, in 2-4 days.

This means any Colorado resident can check PIC and other items out from, and return them to, a library near them.

To take advantage of this service:
1) Ask about interlibrary loans at your nearest library
2) Search the PIC catalog or Colorado Virtual Library, under “Other” library type.
3) Provide your library with a title, author, date of publication and any other pertinent information, and
4) They’ll do the rest!
