INTERLIBARY LOAN-REQUEST ITEMS THE LIBRARY DOESN’T HAVE.
Bailey Library provides access to other libraries' materials via Resource Sharing Services. These services can be used to request books, full-text articles, and more that the library does not currently have in their collection. Patrons will receive an email notification when their article has arrived and can be viewed in their ILLiad account in pdf form. Requested books can take 1 or more weeks to come in and need to be picked up in Bailey Library within 5 days of patron notification of arrival.
Bailey Library's two Interlibrary Loan services are ILLIAD and E-Z Borrow.
ILLIAD is used to request articles, books, book chapters, dissertations/theses, and DVDs. ILLIAD is accessed via your SRU Username and SRU Password. First-time users need to create an account in ILLiad by providing basic contact information requested on the form.
E-Z Borrow is used to request books directly from other universities. The user chooses the book they want to borrow and receives a confirmation email that their request will be filled or is not able to be filled. The patron receives a notification email when the book arrives and has 5 days to pick it up from Bailey Library. 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.

Notice – Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions
The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials.
Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that use may be liable for copyright infringement.
This institution reserves the right to refuse a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
Interlibrary Loan Restrictions
Interlibrary loan allows libraries to obtain copyrighted material from other libraries if the material is intended for private study and research. Materials obtained through interlibrary loan may not be shared with others. The Library will not place copyrighted materials borrowed through interlibrary loan on course reserve.
