Catch the Campus Express!

It’s not too late to sign up for ILL Campus Express, a service provided by Rice Library’s Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Unit. Following a successful trial run, this service is now being offered to all interested USI faculty campus-wide. It will provide delivery of ILL books and other returnable materials via USI campus mail. At this time, this service is only available to USI Faculty.

Participants in the ILL Campus Express program receive an email notification when their ILL materials have arrived at Rice Library, and can expect delivery to their campus mailbox within 1-2 work days. Items arrive in a red nylon courier bag. Materials and bag may be returned to Rice Library through campus mail or dropped off at the Rice Library Checkout counter by the designated due date.

If you would like to participate, please read the Campus Express letter, print, sign, and date the attached form, and return to Erica Conn through campus mail.

If you have not yet taken advantage of the services Interlibrary Loan (ILL) can provide, we invite you to do so today! ILL allows USI students, faculty and staff access to materials not owned by Rice Library. ILLiad allows sharing of books, journal and newspaper articles, book chapters, dissertations, and other desired items from libraries in Indiana, the U.S., and elsewhere. Because we work with thousands of resource-sharing libraries, many needed materials are acquirable through ILL.

To sign up for Interlibrary Loan, patrons need to create a user profile by logging on to “ILLiad” using their MyUSI username and Password. The login page is located under the Interlibrary Loan tab on the Rice Library home page. Once a user profile is created, participants may continue using ILLiad to create new, cancel, or manage existing requests, request renewals, update their profile, etc.

For more information, please visit the ILL Web Pages, or contact:

Erica Conn – Interlibrary Loan Senior Library Assistant – efconn@usi.edu/ (812) 465-1683, or Brad Reel – Reference and Interlibrary Loan Librarian – bnreel@usi.edu/ (812) 465-1638

We look forward to serving you and wish you all a terrific Spring Semester!
