First, there’s that rush of adrenaline…Yes! The library DOES have that book or video I need! But then … what’s that thing about its being checked out? Someone else has the nerve, the gall, the presumption, to have it already? Now what do I do? Your first option is a waiting list. Follow the prompts to sign in and you’ll see ordering options. Click on “Waitlist”, and your name will be put on a waiting list. What if I can’t wait that long? Frequently books are borrowed for extended periods, especially when faculty are using them for long-term research projects. If you don’t think you can wait until the book comes back, just click on “Request from another library” and follow the prompts to our ILLiad ordering service, and we’ll get it from one of our partner libraries. Either way, we’ll let you know by email when the item is ready for you to come and pick it up!
