Faculty Campus Delivery & ILLiad Loans
As you may now be well aware, the Kelvin Smith Library is implementing a new service for faculty within the College of Arts and Sciences, the Case School of Engineering, and the Weatherhead School of Management. This was originally announced in the KSL News Blog for March 2013, and requires that your academic department arrange to have a regular, designated drop-off point for OhioLINK and Interlibrary Loan items to be deposited. Individual faculty members must have registered for this service through a link in the aforementioned blog entry, and this will apply only to your OhioLINK loans.
As far as other Interlibrary Loan materials, such as those provided through your KSL ILLiad account, you must also contact the ILL staff for have the analogous service activated. This will require first that you have established an account in the KSL ILLiad system, which you may access at the KSL ILLiad Logon Page. To create a new account, please select the 'First Time Users' link, and follow the prompts. If you have already entered your profile, simply log into your existing account. Go to the Main Menu in the left-hand column, down to the 'Tools' section, and select 'Change User Information'. At the bottom of this page you will find instructions on how to have your ILLiad loan delivery option updated to accommodate Faculty Campus Delivery. Please note that you cannot make this change yourself, but must contact ILL staff to update this setting for you.
Please keep in mind that any items marked for 'Library Use Only' cannot be delivered, and will be held at the Kelvin Smith Library, where they must be signed out and used on-site. Faculty in the Music Department who would instead prefer to have such materials held in the Kulas Music Library must also contact ILL staff to request campus delivery service. Please note that Music Faculty who sign up for this option will have their circulating ILLiad loans automatically checked out and delivered to Kulas as well. On the other hand, OhioLINK book loans normally require that delivery location be specified at the time they are submitted -- so Music Faculty need only make the appropriate selection of 'Kulas Music Library' as their Pickup Location in each instance, for the equivalent service.
If you are Faculty in one of the academic departments that have arranged for a delivery point for this service, and have set up your account profile in Kelvin Smith Library's ILLiad site, contact our ILL staff at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your ILLiad loan services included with campus delivery.
*Please consult your department head or department assistant/secretary as to whether a drop-off point has been designated for library use. Academic Departments appearing in the 'Department or Major' list on the ILLiad 'Change User Information' page for Faculty (mentioned above) are marked with an asterisk (*) as well, if they have already made this arrangement with Kelvin Smith Library. Our current department list is also summarized in our Campus Delivery Departments page.
