This is a service offered to the faculty and staff of Oakland University to provide copies of print materials owned by the Oakland University Libraries. The requested journal articles and book chapters are retrieved from the stacks and copied.
Starting in the Winter 2014 semester a pilot will be implemented to evaluate the feasibility of offering the service at no charge. The pilot phase will end on April 30, 2014, after which time users will be notified of the final decision.
Any request found in the stacks will be guaranteed a forty-eight 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.
Requests must be submitted using ILLiad. Users must select Copy Service from the left navigation menu. For assistance with journal abbreviations and other citation needs users may contact the Research Help Desk at 248-370-4426.
All completed requests will be delivered electronically as PDFs. Patrons will be notified by email when materials are ready to be accessed.
Workload and staff availability prevent us from photocopying Eric film or fiche longer than thirty pages. The requestor will be informed in that event.
