How To: Using ILL to Get Materials Not on Campus
You’re working on a seminar paper and come across a reference to a book or an article that is on point – but it isn’t at Biddle, on campus, or available as a pdf. Do you give up in defeat and look for a substitute resource available on campus? NO! You have a valuable resource available to you that can solve this problem – the WorldCat database with FirstSearch Interlibrary Loan functions.
Materials requested through ILL arrive in approximately 7-10 days, but may take longer. Plan your time accordingly. You’ll be notified when books arrive, and articles will be emailed to you in pdf format. Books received through ILL will have a due date on the attached strap. Books can be renewed (if “No Renewals” is not checked on the attached band) - just send the ILL number on the band and the title of the book to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions on how to use the ILL system, contact Merle Slyhoff, email@example.com, T212.
