ILL is not a sickness – how to get books from other libraries

October 26th, 2009

Marcia Sloan, interlibrary loan specialist, or any of the IUE library staff is happy to aid you in getting books and articles from other libraries so feel free to ask for help.

If you need a book that is not available at this library but is at another Indiana University, select REQUEST DELIVERYon the right side of the IUCat page.  You must be signed into IUCat to get this screen.   Be sure to select EAST as the campus to which you want the book to be delivered.  You will be notified by your IU email at noon of the day it is received.

For a copy of an article or any book not available (checked-out or not owned) in IUCat please fill out the ILLiad form (this link can also be found on our home page).  Just click on “First time user”, register and fill out the form.  You only need to fill this form out once and then add the article citation or book information to the form.  Be sure to click on the “submit” button for each request.  When the article is listed in one of our databases the  red hot quest button Red Hot Quest button will appear, click on it and you’ll be sent to ILLiad where all the information will autofill in the form.

All requests require that you follow the copyright guidelines.  As an IU EAST student, staff or faculty you may borrow materials from libraries outside Indiana University.

You will need to allow 7 or 10 working days for your request to be filled.  You may check to see if the item has arrived by calling 973-8309 or by asking at the Circulation Desk.  We will either call you or email you when your request has arrived.
