Delivery of Library & Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Materials

E-Learning only delivery service will include both UCO owned and ILL materials to students who are enrolled in only online courses and live more than 30 miles from campus. ILL will provide a return label, but the student will need to pay for the delivery of returned item(s). We require the returned material to be tracked and suggest items be insured for protection against lost or damaged materials. Students are responsible for any lost or damaged item(s) being returned. Fines will be based on the postmarked date of the item(s) being sent back for return.

Here's how it works:
Delivery of UCO materials via Library Express:

  1. Find an item you want on the library catalog or Central Search
  2. Login to ILLiad and click on " Bring/deliver library-owned books, etc. to me" **
  3. Fill out the form with the information from the catalog or Central Search
  4. We will send out materials within 24 hours upon receiving request M-F
  5. To return items, please use the return label provided upon receipt of the item(s).

Delivery of ILL materials via Library Express:

  1. Login to ILLiad and click on "Bring/deliver ILL books, etc. to me"**
  2. Fill out the form with the information from the catalog or Central Search

Electronic Delivery of Articles via Library Express

Faculty, Staff, and students can get articles from other libraries electronically delivered through Interlibrary Loan, but Library Express is for faculty, staff, and distant education students who want articles retrieved and electronically delivered from print and microform periodicals that our library owns.

Here's how it works:

  • The article you need is only available in a print or microform periodical that the library owns *
  • Login to ILLiad and click on "E-deliver library-owned articles" **
  • Fill out the form with as much information as you have about the article
  • We will scan the article and send you an email with a link to retrieve it in pdf format

* You can look up titles of periodicals by clicking "Journal Lookup" on the home page. If the name of the periodical does not appear or the library does not have access to the date you need, please request the article through Interlibrary Loan. If the periodical is not available in full text online but is available in print or microform in UCO Library, you can use Library Express to request an electronic copy.
