Interlibrary Loans

  • The CWC Library participates in the Wyoming Libraries Database (WYLD) consortium, meaning that we can provide users with access to materials through interlibrary loan from nearly all Wyoming Libraries and libraries throughout the United States. Interlibrary Loan is a free service for staff and students—however, late fees, damage, or replacement costs are the users' responsibility and are determined by the lending library. Your CWC library card can also be used in person at any Wyoming Library in the WYLD consortium.

How to Request a Book

Steps to requesting items through Interlibrary Loan

  • 1. Sign into your Library Account
    • Found at the top right of the library catalog, where it shows "Sign In."
    • Use your barcode number on the back of your ID Card 
    • PIN = WYLD
      • This will show your account where you can view all items checked out, overdue, recommended lists, - etc.  More on this in the Your Library Account section.
  • 2. Use the search bar to conduct your search using KEYWORDS.
