More Comments on KSL Depository Scan Requests

This is just a follow-up to my previous blog entry from November 13, 2017, to clarify when you should choose to submit an ILLiad transaction specifically as a "KSL Depository Scan Request". So here goes...

When you need to have an electronic reproduction made of an excerpt from an item from our collection, where the Library Catalog indicates the location "KSL Depository" at the item-level line entry...

* Log into your ILLiad Account and select from one of the following request forms: Journal Article, Book Chapter, Conference Paper.
* At the top of the form, select "Yes" where it inquires: Is this a "KSL Depository" scan request? -- if you are registered with a "Depository Request" status (for guest-level KSL ILLiad users), this choice does not appear since it is already implied.
* Continue entering at least all the required fields and submit your request.

Below are some examples of titles in our collections that specifically have the item-level location "KSL Depository"--

* Unclassed journals: Journal of the Society for Psychical Research, Scripta mathematica -- use "Journal Article" request form.
* A serial classed with a call number: Bonner Jahrbücher -- use "Journal Article" request form.
* A multi-volume reference book: Encyclopedia of propaganda -- use "Book Chapter" request form.
* Books: Dialogue concerning the two chief world systems, War and peace, The elements of fractional distillation -- use "Book Chapter" request form.
* Conference proceedings: Colloid science, a symposium, Physique colloïdale et biologie,
Chimie colloïdale et biologie -- use "Conference Paper" request form.

The above list illustrates the sorts of items in our collection for which you should use the "KSL Depository" scan request option. The following locations do not apply to this service: KSL Periodicals 1st Floor, KSL Oversize 1st Floor, KSL Stacks 3rd Floor, KSL Closed Stacks Lower Level, KSL Freedman Center, KSL A/V Service Center 1st Floor, KSL Gov Docs 2nd Floor, KSL Special Collections or any other location appearing in our catalog not beginning with "KSL". In short, anything that is NOT in the KSL Depository.

We are still providing courtesy document delivery scans for qualifying faculty and distance education graduate students, and for registered alumni online library users. You may submit these requests using the aforementioned ILLiad forms -- just select "No" or leave the KSL Depository option blank.

As always, submit any regular interlibrary loan requests by also selecting "No" or leaving the option blank. Choosing "Yes" in these cases will mis-route your transaction in ILLiad and delay timely processing of your request.

Again, thank you, and hope this advice is helpful.
