We also provide information about the Oregon State Library’s Talking Books and Braille Library.

Interlibrary Loan

Request an Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loans (ILLs) allow Mt. Angel Public Library patrons with valid library cards to borrow items owned by other library systems outside of CCRLS. If you can’t find something you want in the CCRLS catalog and it was published/released at least one year ago, you may use an ILL to request it. Note that the interlibrary loan process usually takes at least 3 weeks.

Please fill out the following form. Mt. Angel Public Library ILL Form

Interlibrary Loans (ILLs) allow Mt. Angle Public Library patrons with valid library cards to borrow items owned by other library systems. If you can’t find something you want in the CCRLS catalog (CATALOG.CCRLS.ORG) and it was published/released at least one year ago, you can use an ILL to request it.

Things to know before proceeding…

• Please check the library catalog (CATALOG.CCRLS.ORG) first. We may already own a copy of the material you are requesting. If we do own a copy and it is currently not available, please place a hold on the item. We will not be able to submit an ILL request for items we already own.

• Items published in the current calendar year cannot be ordered.

• Requests can only be made if account information is current and fines are below $25.

• You will be notified according to the preference listed in your account information when your item arrives. Items will be held for 10 days after notification.

• Please note that the due date of your Interlibrary Loan may differ from regular Mt. Angel library due dates.

• Interlibrary Loans are non-renewable.

Proctor Services

Mt. Angel Public Library offers free proctor services. Education providers have various and differing proctoring requirements. The student should be clear about the proctoring requirements of their institution and decide whether the Library is the correct fit for meeting their testing needs prior to contacting the Library.

Guidelines:

Sessions can take place during regular library hours. All tests must be completed 30 minutes before closing.
Tuesday-11:00 am-6:00 pm
Wednesday and Friday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm
Thursday 11:00 am-8:00 pm
Saturday 12:00 am – 5:00 pm
Sunday & Monday Closed


Each proctoring session must be requested separately.
While the library staff will do its best to meet the scheduling needs of the student, the staff will determine date and time for appointments.
We will do our best to accommodate all requests, but we reserve the right to suspend this service at any time.


We may have to cancel or change a test date due to inclement weather, computer malfunctions, etc. We will do our best to contact you if this should occur.


The Library recognizes that the process of scheduling and taking examinations required for online and distance education programs can be demanding and stressful.


We provide proctor service for web-based tests or paper-based tests. Tests may be sent by postal mail or email or students may log in to web-based testing through their institution. We cannot accept tests via fax or brought in by students.

We have public computers available for web-based tests. You may bring a laptop to use for the test if your testing institution allows. We can provide free wireless access to the Internet and an electrical outlet, but we cannot provide technical support for your equipment. We cannot guarantee uninterrupted Internet access.

If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Mills, Library Director, at 503-845-6401 or jmills@ci.mt-angel.or.us

If you have testing needs that cannot be met at Mt. Angel Public Library, you may wish to contact Testing Services at the Salem Campus of Chemeketa Community College—See https://www.chemeketa.edu/students/student-services/testing-center/

Before Your Exam:

Please familiarize yourself with the testing requirements from your testing institution; you are responsible for following them, and for following all instructions they give you. The Library may not qualify as a test site based on those requirements.
Please allow plenty of time before your test due date to schedule proctor service.
Please contact the library before the date of your exam to confirm that the Library has received testing information from your institution.
Bring photo identification to your proctoring session. The name on the photo ID must match the name on the exam documents.
You are responsible for providing all necessary supplies (pens, paper, calculator, etc.). Please bring these with you to your session.

The Day of Your Exam:

Please check in with the staff member at the circulation desk at the date and time of your scheduled exam.
A librarian will be scheduled to proctor all exams.
Due to the nature of a public library, we cannot guarantee a quiet place or continuous monitoring throughout the exam. You will be in sight of the proctor and the proctor will check on you periodically. Library service takes priority over proctoring.
Proctors cannot interpret test instructions or assist in technical matters for an online test.
Proctors will enforce any rules listed in testing instructions or exam materials (e.g. time limits, use of textbooks, etc.).
You, or your testing institution, are responsible for any postage required to return your exam by mail. We cannot return tests via fax. We can return tests via email by scanning your test.
