While the Dewey and Science Libraries are closed, you may continue to place UA Delivery Services requests through ILLiad.  Library staff will make a run to Dewey Library on 12/28 and daily runs to the Science Library in order to pull material from the stacks so that it can be brought to the University Library for processing.  Please allow for longer turnaround times.

  • Book Delivery – You may submit requests for books from Dewey and Science Libraries. You will be able to pick those books up from the University (Main) Library.

SUBMITTING INTERLIBRARY LOAN REQUESTS DECEMBER 20th - JANUARY 2nd


 
The Interlibrary Loan office will be staffed for regular business hours during the holidays, with the exception that the office will be closed on December 26th and January 2nd per the University Library being closed on those days. You may submit interlibrary loan requests as usual.  Due to the holiday closing of many libraries that lend us materials, please expect that it may take a bit longer than usual to fill your requests.

  • Books – You may submit requests for books as usual. However, during this period all books will be held at the University (Main) Library regardless of your normal pick location.
