The actual title is "Bigger, Faster, Stronger". IUP owns the book (call number GV346.S55 2004), but we don't have the video. We might be able to borrow the video from another library. To request it, you'll need to use the ILLIAD Interlibrary Loan system. To find ILLIAD, go to the Library Home Page (www.iup.edu/library), click on the "Books and More" and then on "ILLIAD (Interlibrary Loan)". This will take you to the ILLIAD login page. In order to make requests you must be a registered user and enter your user ID and password. If you don't already have an account, just click on 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 link to get the registration page. Fill out the contact information requested (including establishing your user ID and password) and click "Submit". You'll be immediately registered and you can begin making requests. On the main ILLIAD menu, you have the option to "Request a Photocopy" (used for journal articles and specific book chapters), "Request a Book", or "Request a Video". Just select the appropriate form and enter the information about the item you need. Also, enter the following text (OCLC#233603474) in the notes field. This is the specific record number for that video in the Interlibrary Loan system, so it will expedite the request. We have mixed results in requesting videos through ILL. Some libraries do lend their videos and some don't. The only thing we can do is to try to request it. If we are able to obtain a copy, you'll receive an e-mail message when the item arrives and then you can pick it up at the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of Stapleton. If we are unable to get a copy, you'll get an e-mail notification about that as well. Usually the process takes about 3-6 working days.
