First, double check the online catalog to make sure that the book doesn't exist at the main library. We often have copies locally, and in such a case the Main Library record will be listed along with the regional campus record.

Once you've confirmed that the item is not held at main campus, you can request it through the ILLIAD Interlibrary Loan system (normally, book requests go through our PALCI interlibrary loan page, but because that it automated, it would end up rejecting a request like this). 

You can find ILLIAD by going to the Library Home Page (www.iup.edu/library), clicking on Interlibrary Loan in the Library Services area, and then selecting the ILLIAD link. Clicking that link will take you to the ILLIAD login page. In order to make requests, you must be a registered user. If you don't already have an account, just follow the "First Time Users" link to create an account.

Once you log in, you'll get the main page. In the left column, select the "Request a Book" option and enter the information about the item you need. It is helpful if you can enter a note stating that it is at the Punxy campus and the call number in the "Notes" field.
