Q. What should I do if an item in the catalog says "In Transit?"

Over the summer, the Libraries will be moving a large number of volumes to our new facility

As the movers work on a section of the collections, the entire section will be labeled "In Transit" to indicate that items may be inaccessible for a short while.  Even items staying in Mullins Library will be put "In Transit" as the area is shifted. 

Find a book you need that is marked "In Transit?"  We can borrow it for you from another library with the Interlibrary Loan service (ILLiad).  ILL is fast, convenient, and free to you.  Most items will be delivered to the main service desk within 5 working days; articles and chapters delivered electronically can take as little as a few hours.  See our help videos on using ILLIad for more information.


In the library catalog, click the button for In Transit? Request on ILL to borrow the entire volume.  Or Request an Article Scan or Request a Chapter Scan if you need only a few pages from the item.
