Unfortunately, IUP does not own the book you are looking for. Since we don't have it, we could get a copy for you from another library. All you have to do is request it via Interlibrary Loan. The process usually takes about 3-6 working days. To request it through Interlibrary Loan, you should use the ILLIAD request system. Just go to the Library Home Page (, click on "Books and More" and then on "Illiad (Interlibrary Loan)". This will take you to the main ILLIAD login screen. In order to make requests via ILLIAD, you must be a registered user. If you don't already have a user ID and password, just click on 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, enter your contact information and set up your user ID and password and then click "Submit". You will be immediately registered and taken to the main ILLIAD menu. Once you log in and get the main ILLIAD menu, you'll have a couple of choices. You can choose "Request a Photocopy" to request a journal article or specific book chapter. Use "Request a Book" to ask for books. Select the appropriate request form and enter the information about the item you. When you are finished, click "Submit". Once you've submitted a request, our staff will contact a library that has that material and request that it be sent here for you to use. When the item arrives on campus, you'll receive e-mail notification and then you can pick up the material at the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of Stapleton Library.
