Request Delivery

IUPUI students, faculty and staff may place online requests to obtain most books located at most other IU libraries without using traditional interlibrary loan methods or filling out a form. This service is called Request Delivery, and is much faster for you as a library user while saving the IU library system money. Most books arrive within 4-7 working days.

Materials from the IUB Law Library, IUB Kinsey Library, CEDIR Library, Archives of Traditional Music Library, Cyclotron Library, University Archives, Lilly Library, and the Bloomington Residence Halls are excluded from Request Delivery. In addition, some materials (i.e. reference books and other non-circulating collections and short term loan collections) from participating libraries may be excluded.

You must log on to IUCAT using your official university Net ID/Password in order to use Request Delivery and will be prompted to do so after clicking on the Request Delivery button within an IUCAT record. If you are using Classic IUCAT, you must log on before searching. We recommend that you do not limit your search by campus in order to see all available library materials.

Request Delivery can also be used to request items from the IUPUI Library collections be held for you. Please note that by placing a request through Request Delivery, there is some delay involved. Your request will not appear on the list of items to be retrieved from the stacks until the morning of the next business day. If the item must come from another campus library, there will be further delay involved. If you require a book immediately, you must personally visit the library and retrieve the book. Circulation staff are not able to pull items for patrons on demand, unless you qualify for services as an individual with a disability.

Due to varying policies across the IU Library system, Indiana Resident Users are ineligible for Request Delivery.
