Associate in Arts campuses now have streamlined access to UD Library's collections
Research can take you in surprising directions. If one of those directions leads you to a book the University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press doesn’t have in its collections, Interlibrary Loan will reach out to libraries throughout the world to find you a copy.
For students, faculty and staff at the UD’s Associate in Arts Program (AAP) campuses in Dover, Georgetown and Wilmington, an additional delivery service has been implemented.
To ensure UD students, faculty and staff on AAP campuses have streamlined access to the breadth of UD Library’s collections and partnerships, they now can request material from the collections of UD’s main campus in Newark and receive it within two to three business days via Interlibrary Loan.
A Library video provides a quick overview of how to take advantage of this service.
Requested items will be delivered to the respective AAP campus’ administrative office and distributed to the requester by AAP staff. There is no charge for this service, which includes return shipment instructions and packaging for all loans.
In addition to receiving physical copies from main campus, UD students, faculty and staff on AAP campuses also have access to the Article DELivery Service. With this service, individuals can request and receive copies of articles and book chapters from materials available in the UD Library’s print and microform collections. These PDF copies are typically available in two business days.
UD students, faculty and staff on AAP campuses may also request materials not held within the UD Library’s collection from other libraries around the world through Interlibrary Loan.
Additionally, the libraries at the Delaware Technical Community College campuses continue to be available to all members of the AAP community.
