Have you ever been wrapped up in your teaching and research that you haven’t had time to go to the library to get the resources you need? The Frederick Douglass Library now has the solution for busy faculty. Through the Interlibrary Loan department Faculty can have library materials delivered directly to their personal or department office. This new service called Document Delivery is being offered to all faculty and staff. Graduate students are also offered this service but only for library owned articles which will be delivered electronically.
The method is simple just search the library catalog for the item you wish to have delivered. Once you find the item you want click the Find It button. An option will appear which says “Request Document Delivery of UMES Resource to department.” This option will link you to your Illiad account where you can sign in and have the information automatically populate the request form. You simply have to verify the required fields are complete and click the submit button. Provided the item is available for check out it will be delivered to your office or department at the next delivery time currently set for the afternoon Monday through Friday. Pickup of items can be arranged by calling the Interlibrary Loan Department.
In addition any article requested by Faculty, Staff or Graduate students via Inter-library loan that is found to be available in the library’s print collection will be scanned and made available through your Illiad account electronically.
Through this service Faculty and staff will have more access to library materials without the hassle of trekking to the library although we hope that doesn’t stop you from coming by to see us.
