Remember those lovely relaxing fall weather talks you had with friends sitting together on the snazzy blue and red Adirondack chairs in front of the Library. Alas, those sunny days are gone. You will need to move your philosophical discussions into the intellectual warmth of the Library. No red and blue Adirondacks, but comfortably plush chairs and divans. Come inside for the Winter.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Borrowing Books and Articles from Other Libraries via ILLiad
Direct Request through ILLiad is a largely unmediated service which relays a book request directly to potential lenders without SU staff intervention unless flagged as a problem. Currently, books costing less than $20 on Amazon, will be purchased and added to our collection instead of being borrowed from another institution. The turn-around time is usually 2-3 days.
You may initiate a BOOK Direct Request in several ways.
1. ILLiad - If you have the title of a book you would like to borrow, you may log into ILLiad at illiad.ship.edu, entering your SU email and password and keying in the information you have about the book you require.
2. WorldCat (shiplibrary.worldcat.org) - You may want to borrow a book we do not own that you have found on WorldCat. By clicking on Request Via InterLibrary Loan in WorldCat a session of ILLiad is automatically opened. After you log in, WorldCat will fill in the information about the book you have requested.
Direct Request through ILLiad is a largely unmediated service which relays an article request directly to potential lenders without SU staff intervention unless flagged as a problem. CCC GetIt Now from the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) automatically performs a cost determination for a requested article using the GetIt Now Service. When a copyright fee is assessed for an article, GetIt Now will be used first. Articles are usually received from the publisher and processed by ILL staff within 2 hours. Costs for these unusual articles can range from $24-$37 which at this time are absorbed by the library. The turn-around time is usually 1-3 days.
You may initiate an ARTICLE Direct Request in several ways.
1. ILLiad - If you have the title of an article you would like to borrow, you may log into ILLiad at illiad.ship.edu, entering your SU email and password and keying in the information you have about the article you require.
2. Databases (research.library.ship.edu/azlist) such as those we have from EBSCOhost, e.g. Academic Search Complete - If the full text of the article you have discovered is not included within the database, Choose Check Availability. This will first initiate a search against other databases we own. If full text is not available at SU, choose ILLiad at the bottom of the screen to automatically open an ILLiad session. After you log into ILLiad, the database will fill in the information about the article you have requested.
