Form: Not A Four Letter Word
When you think of forms you may remember your last trip to the DMV and you may have already stopped reading this and ran from your computer. Don’t make for the hills quite yet, we are talking about a different kind of form, the ones the library has to help you! The library has a variety of E-forms to help you to get the most out of the services provided for you at the library, don’t believe me? Here’s all the info, you be the judge.
To get to the libraries’ page of forms, start at the library home page ] and towards the top of the screen you will see an option that says “Library Services." Place the mouse over it and a drop down menu will appear. Travel down to the “Forms��? tab, and now it is safe to click. You have now reached the page that will give you links and information on all of the forms and services available through the University Libraries.
One of the most helpful resources offered by the library is the UA Delivery service; it allows you to request articles and books to be sent between libraries. You will need to register for UA Delivery, but trust me it’s all basic information. After that you are set to begin requesting items to be sent to your closest library. There are a few restrictions], so make sure you are aware of these.
If you are like me you want to be the first in line at the movies to get the best seats, or first to buy the newest video game title. You can also be first in line to get the newest items available at the library! Sometimes you will come across items in our catalog which have arrived at the libraries, but haven't been put on the shelves yet. These will have the status of "On Order" or "In Processing". To speed up the system and receive these items ASAP, just fill out the form titled On Order/In Processing Request Form, and as soon as the item is available we will let you know and it’s all yours!
Back in 1990 a group named Snap! released a song called “The Power��?, (don’t lie, you know the one I’m talking about!) Think of a woman singing “I’ve got the power!��? and a video with men sporting some early 90’s flat tops. Well, like the members of Snap! you now have the power… to recommend that the library purchase certain items! Fill out the Recommendation for Library Purchase form and your request is on its way!
The University Libraries have a variety of forms that will help you to utilize the various services they offer. Check out the above mentioned, and many others and you will find that form will never be four letter word in your vocabulary again!
