The book you are looking for is not widely available in libraries. According to the WorldCat database, there are only 14 libraries nationwide that report owning it. It isn't something that IUP owns. Normally, you can request books that IUP doesn't have through the PALCI (Pennsylvania Academic Library Consortium, Inc.) system, but, there are no libraries within Pennsylvania that own it. The IUP Library can try to borrow a copy of it if you put in a request through our ILLIAD Interlibrary Loan (ILL) system. To find ILLIAD, go to the Library Home Page(, click on "Books and More" and then select the "ILLIAD (Interlibrary Loan)" option. This will take you to the login page. In order to make requests through ILLIAD, you must be a registered user and have a user name and password. If you don't have an account, just follow the "First Time Users" link. This will take you to a page that explains the system and that has a "First Time Users Click Here" button at the bottom. Click that button to get the registration page. Fill in the information requested and click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the form and you'll be immediately registered. On the main ILLIAD page, there are two different request types. "Request a Photocopy" is used for journal articles and individual book chapters. "Request a Book" is for books. Select the appropriate request form and enter as much information about the item as you can. The information for your book is: Author : Tim J. Wise Title : Little White Lies : the Truth about Affirmative Action and "Reverse Discrimination" Publisher" Twomey Center for Peace Through Justice, Loyola University Date : 1995 It would also be helpful if you could enter the following in the "Notes" area: OCLC # 35086772 This note will tell the ILL department staff exactly what record to use to request the book and will expedite the process. Once you submit the request, our staff will contact libraries that own the book and ask that it be sent here for you to use. The process usually takes about 3-6 working days. You will receive e-mail notification when the book arrives and then you can pick it up at the Circulation Desk on the main floor of Stapleton Library.
