Outer-Library Loan

We are not processing OLL requests starting June 19.  We will hold requests from our patrons and will process them the week of July 22.

If a patron wants to submit a request between June 19 - July 22, they can order them from Middleton & Deforest. 


This service allows patrons to borrow materials from libraries within the United States that are NOT AVAILABLE in LINKcat.

Outer-Library Loan (OLL - formerly ILL) is a borrowing privilege for patrons with a valid library card.

ALWAYS CHECK LINKcat, the library's catalog, FIRST to see if we own the material BEFORE submitting OLL requests.


Outer-library loans are not allowed under the following circumstances:

  • Item is less than 6 months old

  • Item is available in LINKcat
  • Patron fines exceed $10
  • "Stop" on patron's card
  • More than 5 OLL titles requested in 1 day
  • More than 50 OLL requests per person per calendar year
  • Patron has active payment plan



If you have questions about OLL or your request, please contact wauoll@waupl.org, call 608-849-4217, or visit us at Waunakee Public Library.
