There are a variety of reasons and ways one might request materials. Common examples include retrieving materials the UO owns for your research or education needs, and accessing digital or physical content from other libraries that UO does not own.
Requesting UO Material
Books and AV Material
UO faculty, students, and staff can request to have available material paged and sent to their preferred branch library pickup location, Campus Office Delivery (faculty only), or home address provided in Banner (UO Online & Distance Education faculty/students only). AV material may also be booked for classroom use. Checked out material may also be requested, but is subject to a recall period. Please note that not all library material is requestable.
Journal Articles and Book Chapters
Library users can also request journal articles and book chapters to be scanned and emailed directly to them. This service is free to UO faculty, students, and staff. There is a $15 charge per request for Oregon Card holders, members of the Alumni Association, and UO Associates.
Look for the Scan & Deliver option under "Get it" when using LibrarySearch, or log in to your ILLiad account and fill out a blank Scan & Deliver request form.
Requesting from Another Library
UO faculty, students, and staff can request books and AV material from other libraries in the Orbis Cascade Alliance. This service is not available to the public. Look for the Summit Request option under "Get it" in LibrarySearch
Library borrowers can request books, AV material, journal articles, and book chapters from libraries worldwide. Look for the Interlibrary Loan option under "Get it" in LibrarySearch. This service is free for UO faculty, students, and staff. There is a $15 charge per fulfilled request for Oregon Card holders, members of the Alumni Association, UO Associates, and participants of Special Programs, e.g. RARE AmeriCorps, Bach Festival, etc.
