Inter-College Loans

Inter-college loans allow for students from any RCCD college to utilize select library materials of MVC's sister colleges. If you need a book from the Norco or Riverside City college libraries, you may request an inter-college loan. The book will be shipped to the Moreno Valley College Library and be available to you within approximately one week. You may return the book to any of the three college libraries. Check-out periods and fees apply.

If you need a photocopy or scan of an article in a periodical available only at the Norco or Riverside City college libraries, you may request an inter-college photocopy or scan.

To get started, contact a Reference Librarian at (951) 571-6447 or a circulation staff member at (951) 571-6356.

  • A maximum of five (5) requests will be filled at one time.
  • To request an inter-college loan, bring the title of the book and call number to the circulation counter and we will help you fill out the request form. The books will be available at the circulation counter upon arrival. You may also download and print the request form in advance.
