In addition to Interlibrary Loan, the University Libraries offers the following delivery services:
Campus Book Delivery
The University Libraries will deliver books from our collection to the on-campus offices of UNCG faculty and staff. To order a book, please fill out an Interlibrary Loan request form by logging in with your UNCG login and password; click on Request a Book Delivery on the left side menu and complete the form by minimally providing the call number, author/editor name, and book title. Most books will be delivered within three working days of the request. This service is available year round. Please be sure that your current campus address is listed in your Interlibrary Loan account. To view and edit it, choose Personal Information under the Tools section.
Desktop Document Delivery
The University Libraries will email scanned copies of non-circulating print items, up to 100 pages, to UNCG graduate students, faculty, and staff. We will also scan and email up to 25 pages of microfiche or microfilm. This desktop delivery service provides basic black-and-white scanned documents, and most will be delivered within three days of the request. To place your order please fill out an Interlibrary Loan request form by logging in with your UNCG login and password; click on Request a Document Delivery on the left side menu and complete the form by minimally providing the Journal Title, year, inclusive pages, and article title. This service is available year round.
Instructional Film Booking and Delivery
UNCG faculty, staff, and teaching assistants can book instructional films to be delivered to their on-campus offices for classroom use. Please use this form to make your request. This service is available year round.
Distance Education Students
We will mail books from our collection to students registered as DISTANCE students who live outside of Guilford County free of charge. We will include a prepaid return label. To take advantage of this service, please fill out an Interlibrary Loan request form by logging in with your UNCG login and password and click on Request a Loan from the left side menu - just as you would for ordering a book from another library. Make a note in the "notes" box that you are a Distance Student to make it easier for our ILL staff to understand the request. This service is available year round. Check out the Distance & Online Learning Guide for more info if you are a distance student.
Please contact the Libraries if you have any questions or concerns. We will be glad to try to assist you.
