Former NExpress members have agreed to keep working together to provide expedited Interlibrary Loan services with the start of the Phoenix Rapid Returnables Pod. All requests will be processed through ILLiad, but requests for materials owned and available at any of the Phoenix Pod members will be ordered automatically, delivered by UPS, and loaned for an extended period of two months (with a renewal of another month).
What do you need to do to take advantage of Rapid’s automated ordering? Nothing special! If you need a book or an article that we don’t own, submit a request via ILLiad at go.middlebury.edu/ill/ as usual, and be sure to include an ISSN or OCLC Accession number. (Need help with that? Ask a librarian!)
I want to personally attest to ILL’s speediness – I requested a book yesterday afternoon, and got it today, 24 hours later! Thanks ILL!
