According to the PILOT online catalog, that book is available in the Reserve Collection at the Circulation Desk at Stapleton Library. It is a professor's personal copy. Normally, students at the Monroeville Center can request books through the Interlibrary Loan process. However, I'm not sure that this particular book could be loaned that way since it is on reserve. I would suggest that you request the book on Interlibrary Loan, anyway. If we are unable to lend this copy, we can get another copy from another library. The processing time to get it to Monroeville will be about the same. To place the request, you need to use the ILLIAD Interlibrary Loan system. Just go to the Library Home Page (www.iup.edu/library), click on "Books and More" and then click on the "ILLIAD (Interlibrary Loan)" option. This will take you to the ILLIAD login page. In order to use ILLIAD, you must be a registered user with a user ID and password. If you don't already have an account, just follow the "First Time Users" link. This takes 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. On the registration page, fill in the information requested, including establishing your user ID and password. For Monroeville students, it is particularly important that you select "Monroeville Center" for the "Site" option. This will make sure that your materials are sent to the proper place. Once you've registered, you'll be immediately taken to the main ILLIAD page. There, you have the choice of "Request a Photocopy" (used for articles or specific book chapters) or "Request a Book". Select the appropriate option and then enter the information about the item you need. Once you submit the request, our ILL staff will process the request, find the material you need and ship it to the Monroeville site. You'll receive e-mail notification when the material is available. If you are requesting material from the main campus, please enter the call number in the "Notes" field of the request. This will help expedite the request. Processing time for ILL requests is about 3-6 working days. I
