IEE 594: Industrial Engineering Graduate Seminar : Interlibrary Loan / Document Delivery

Introduction to the ASU Library and literature searching.

Introduction

Is the book or journal article you need on a different ASU campus or are they not available in any ASU Library?
The ASU Library provides free services that will get you these materials.  

To determine which service you need to use ...

  • Journal Articles:
    • If you need an article and its not available online, use the INTERLIBRARY LOAN service to request the item.  Doesn't matter if the article is available in the ASU Library in print, microformat or not available at ASU at all.   A scanned copy of the article will be placed in your ILLiad account for 90 days. 
  • Books:
    • If the book is available in an ASU Library, use REQUEST service to have it picked up and held for you at the ASU Library of your choice. 
    • If the book is available in the ASU Library but it is currently checked out, you have several options:
      • Use the REQUEST service to have that ASU copy recalled and held for you to pickup.
      • Use the BORROW IT NOW service to borrow a different copy of the book from another library.
      • If the BORROW IT NOW service indicates it cannot get the book, use the INTERLIBRARY LOAN service to borrow a different copy of the book from another library.

For more detail about these services see our ILL/Document Delivery guide. If you have any questions or difficulties with any of these services our Document Delivery services please contact our staff at 480-965-3282 or at ill@asu.edu.

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... Activate Your Account

To activate your Interlibrary Loan account start with the Libraries home page (http://lib.asu.edu).  Mouse over "My Accounts" on the gray navigation bar, then click on "My Illiad Account".

 

You'll be taken to the ILLiad login screen - click on the red, first time users link just above the login boxes.

 

Fill in the forms, submit, and you're all set to start requesting items.

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... How to Submit a Request Directly From a Database

When you are in a library database, such as Compendex or Inspec, you'll be using the yellow "Get It @ ASU" button to determine if the ASU Library has the item online. 

Example:



 

When Get It @ ASU indicates that the article is not online, you may use Option 2 to request the item via the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery service.  When you click on the "Loan/Document Delivery" link you'll be taken to the ILL login screen and once you login, the journal article request form will be automatically filled in by the computer.   All you have to do is check the form for accuracy and hit the submit button.

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... How to Submit a Request Manually

You may also submit a request manually.

  • Log in to your ILL account
  • In the left column under "New Request", select the appropriate type of form for your request (ex."Article" for a journal article, "Book" for borrowing a whole book", "Book Chapter" when you just want a section of the book, etc.)
  • When the form appears, fill it in with as much information as you have, then click submit.

Including the ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) on a journal article request will result in a faster retrieval of the item.  You can find the ISSN for a journal by searching Google with the name of the journal and ISSN. 

Example:

"journal of sound and vibration" ISSN

Interlibrary Loan & Document Delivery ... Viewing a Requested Article

After you submit a request, your account will show the request as "Outstanding" and give the status:

 

 Once the request is received, your account will have the request in the "Electronically Received Articles" section.  You will also be sent an email indicating that the item is now available.  Items stay in your account for 90 days and you may view online, print or download during that time.  After 90 days, the article is removed and the only way to get the article back is to submit another request for it.
