And with winter comes the massive shipping rush of late December. Due to the increased risk of losses (and the lack of open libraries willing to send things) the Interlibrary Loan Department limits ordering and shipping during this time.
If you need anything before winter break request it now! Interlibrary loan requests submitted to ILLiad after Dec. 15th will be ordered in early January.
ILLiad article requests will continue to be filled by RapidILL through Dec. 21st, but must have a valid ISSN and year to be processed a as Rapid request.
For loan materials use NExpress: (http://go/NExpress). NExpress will stay open during break. Requests placed in NExpress go straight to the Lending Library for processing. Loans ordered from NExpress over break should arrive in early January.
