Using Appropriate Forms When Submitting Requests in ILLiad

Just a quick overview regarding which forms to fill out for the corresponding material types...

Articles (Non-Returnables)

* Journal Article: Journal and newspaper articles -- one cited article per request form, please.
* Book Chapter: Book chapters -- please provide chapter number if possible.
* Conference Paper: Research papers presented in the published proceedings for a conference, symposium, meeting, etc.
* Patent: Patents or patent applications.
* Standards Document: Technical, industrial, safety standards, etc.

Loans (Returnables)

* Book: Books, monographs, music scores, published proceedings, exhibition catalogues, etc. -- one edition only per request, please.
* Report: Academic department and corporate research reports, etc.
* Thesis: Thesis and dissertations -- please include reference to granting institution.
* Other (Misc. Loan): -- Special type LOANS only, such as audio-visual materials, journal volumes in print or on microfilm, mixed-media collections, etc. -- DO NOT use this form to cite articles, chapters, papers, patents, standards, or any of the loan-type materials for which appropriate forms already exist. (*See also note below.)

When you use the correct form to submit your ILLiad request, you help us deliver your required materials more quickly, by allowing ILL staff to avoid additional editing and transaction conversion. Your cooperation and consideration is greatly appreciated, as it will help to prevent unnecessary processing delays.

Questions or concerns? Please contact ILL staff, by phone at (216) 368-3463 or (216) 368-3517, or by e-mail at smithill@case.edu.

* FYI: "Misc." is the conventional abbreviation for "Miscellaneous" (which is rarely fully spelled out), adjective -- definition: "of various types or from different sources".

An Additional Clarification:

If you require the reproduction scan of specific pages within a book, thesis or dissertation, or other monographic work, rather than a loan of the entire item, we prefer that you submit a Book Chapter request form, citing the portion (exact pages, if possible) and describing the excerpt (in the 'Chapter Title' field). If you originally submit a Book, Report, Thesis, or "Other" request form, and indicate pages preferred to be scanned in the 'Notes' field, you will still be more likely to receive a loan of the entire item instead.

Thank you again for your cooperation in helping us to better serve your research needs.
