Book FAQs for distance students

Andruss Library owns a book I want. Can it be shipped to me?

Yes. Submit a book request via ILLiad. We will ship the book to you, provided we can locate it on the shelf and it's in good physical condition. It's helpful to us if you add "I am a distance education student" to the Notes field of your book request. Also, please verify your mailing address is current (see Change User Information at ILLiad Main Menu). Please note: we can only ship items within the US)

I need a book Andruss Library doesn't own. Can I borrow it?

Yes. Submit a book request via ILLiad. Please verify your mailing address is current (see Change User Information at ILLiad Main Menu).

Books borrowed from other libraries must be received at Andruss Library first and then forwarded to you. Please be aware this may take several weeks, and the amount of time you can keep the book will be limited. Plan your research accordingly.

Visit our General ILL FAQ to review what types of items are not available or are difficult to obtain via ILL. We regret that the short loan periods for Audio-Visual items means that we cannot obtain AV materials for Distance Education students. Please note: we can only ship items within the US)
