REQUESTING A BOOK
REQUESTING AVILA BOOKS
Students, faculty, and staff may also request books directly from the book collections
of the Avila library. If a book is successfully requested from the Avila
library, it will quickly be "pulled", processed, and made available for "pickup" at the
circulation desk of the Avila library.
Students, faculty, and staff are also encouraged to come to the library and search
for books by using the online catalog, finding the call-number of a book, and then browsing
the "stacks" for the book.
REQUESTING KANSAS CITY BOOKS
In addition to the collection of books in the Avila library,
students, faculty, and staff may request books directly from the Kansas City
cluster of academic libraries. Any book requested from the Kansas City cluster will
arrive in three business days.
REQUESTING MOBIUS BOOKS
Students, faculty, and staff may request books directly from the MOBIUS
Consortium of academic libraries. MOBIUS provides access to books from academic libraries,
and some public libraries, located in the state of Missouri. Any book requested from
MOBIUS will also arrive in three days.
REQUESTING ILL BOOKS
If a book is NOT available in the Avila, Kansas City, or MOBIUS libraries, the book
may be requested as an "Inter-Library Loan (ILL). Via ILL, Avila students, faculty,
and staff can request books that are "owned" by another library "in another state."
Any book successfully requested from an ILL library will usually arrive in one
to two weeks.
