Bailey Library provides access to other libraries' materials via Resource Sharing Services. These services can be used to request books and articles the library does not currently have access to. Many such items are indexed in Bailey Library's databases - though the library may not be able to provide full-text access to them, Interlibrary Loan can usually retrieve them for the user within a few days or less.
Bailey Library's two Interlibrary Loan services are ILLIAD and E-Z Borrow.
ILLIAD is used to request articles, books, and audio/visual materials. Materials are often delivered electronically, with some materials delivered in print to the library for pickup. ILLIAD is accessed via your SRU Username and Password. (Note: If it is your first time using ILLIAD, you will be asked to provide some basic contact information before proceeding.)
E-Z Borrow - E-Z Borrow is used to request books directly from other universities. The user chooses which book they borrow from and received confirmation that the book will be delivered to Bailey Library or will not be fulfilled. E-Z Borrow is accessed using your Banner ID - which is the number beginning with A on your ROCK ID card, or your Library Barcode, a 16 digit number on your ROCK ID card.
