All of the library's books and ebooks can be found using Quick Search on the library homepage. Hopefully you remember some Quick Search basics from when you took Lib 160. If not, or if you'd like a refresher or some help finding something specific, contact your librarian. I'm happy to do one-on-one and group consultations!
For materials in the ISU Library collections in hard copy/print, or that are not in the ISU Library collections at all:
Note: you get 30 document deliveries per year free of charge, so use them wisely!
If you've identified an item of interest in Quick Search and it's listed as Available:
You can always go into the stacks and grab the book you need and take it to the Circulation Desk to check out. This process is for when you don't want to bother with that or don't have time to try to track down what you need.
If you've identified an item of interest in Quick Search and it's listed as Checked out from Parks Library:
If you need an item that is checked out sooner than 2 weeks from now, try Request from Interlibrary Loan and we'll attempt to borrow a copy from another library for you. Or, you can look up the table of contents and use Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery to request PDF copies of the chapter(s) most relevant to you -- this often takes less than 24 hours, but you should not attempt to request an entire book chapter by chapter this way due to copyright restrictions.
There is no fee for any of the above services, including interlibrary loan.
