What's New with ILL?
Document Delivery of UA Owned Materials
Document Delivery is available to current UA faculty, staff, and students.
How does Document Delivery work?
Document Delivery offers Book Express and Article Express for UA faculty, staff and students for items held by UA Libraries. Request materials from the Annex, Gorgas Library, Bruno Business Library, the McLure Education Library and Rodgers Library for Science & Engineering. This excludes the Health Sciences Library and the Bounds Law Library.
If we have what you need in our libraries, we'll find it and hold it for you at the library of your choice or scan and deliver to you electronically (some restrictions may apply). If we don't have it, we'll ask for it from another library. When your item is ready, you will receive an email. Physical items can be picked up at the circulation desk of the library you choose (some restrictions may apply). Electronic items will be delivered to your ILLiad account under "Received Copies" located in the menu on the left side of the screen
Faculty can requests to have materials sent via intra-campus delivery to their campus mailbox. This excludes periodicals, special collection materials, microforms, oversized materials and items borrowed from other universities. Requests will be delivered within 48 - 72hours. If items are needed sooner, you can retrieve the items directly from the stacks and check out at the Circulation desks or self-checkout machines.
How do I place a Document Delivery request?
To place a request within ILLiad, log into your ILLiad account and choose one of the Document Delivery forms listed in the menu on the left side of the screen.
For a copy (article or book chapter), choose this form: Doc Delivery - Copy (UA Libraries Collection)
For a loan (physical item), choose this form: Doc Delivery - Loan (UA Libraries Collection)
Requests may also be initiated from a search within Scout (catalog) by clicking the "Request Item" button on the item record.
