This is a fee-based service offered to the faculty and staff of Oakland University to provide copies of materials owned by the Kresge Library. The requested items are retrieved from the stacks and copied.
University faculty, staff, graduate students and visiting scholars with an account number for the billing of interdepartmental charges are eligible to use the service. The interlibrary loan office generates monthly reports which the Kresge Library's business manager then uses to charge the requestor's department based on the account number supplied at the time of request. The cost of each request is $2.00 plus 20¢ for each page copied.
Any request found in the stacks will be guaranteed a 48-hour turnaround. Requests for items not located in the stacks will be routed to interlibrary loan. Such requests will be governed by the regular interlibrary loan turnaround time. Workload and staff availability prevent us from photocopying Eric fiche longer than 30 pages. The requestor will be informed in that event.
Only those patrons registered in ILLiad are able to submit interlibrary loan requests. Registered patrons must submit requests directly from ILLiad. ILLiad replaces all previous request forms. For assistance with journal abbreviations consult the librarians at the Reference Desk.
All completed requests will be delivered electronically. Patrons will be notified by email when materials are ready to be accessed.
The Kresge Library observes the Copyright Law of the United States which governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproductions. One of the specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
