The PILOT online catalog isn't set up in a way that would allow you to directly request books from the main campus to be sent to Monroeville. You have to do that through the ILLIAD Interlibrary Loan request system. To find ILLIAD, go to the Library Home Page (www.iup.edu/library), click on "Books and More" and select the "ILLIAD (Interlibrary Loan)" option. That will take you to the log in page. In order to make requests, you must be a registered user of ILLIAD. If you don't already have a user name and password, just follow the "First Time Users" link. This will take you to a page that explains that system and that has a "First Time Users Click Here" button at the bottom. Click that link to get the registration page and fill in the information requested. It is particularly important that you select "Monroeville" for the "Site" option. Once you click the submit button at the bottom, you'll be immediately registered and taken to the ILLIAD main menu. On the ILLIAD main menu, you have the option for "Request a Photocopy" (used for articles or book chapters), or "Request a Book". Select the latter option and enter the information about the book you need. It will be helpful if you could put the location and call number from the PILOT catalog in the "Notes" field. This will help expidite your request. Once you submit the request, our staff will pull the book and send it to Monroeville for you to pick up. The process usually take 3-4 working days.
