******** INTERLIBRARY LOAN WINTER BREAK HOURS ********

Nov. 18, 2014 – Due to excessive shipping delays, increased risk of losing items in the mail, staffing shortages, among other issues, most lending libraries will not fill interlibrary loan requests from mid-December through the first week or two of January.  Therefore, our Interlibrary Loan office will stop most interlibrary borrowing during the Winter Break.  Please note the following schedule and plan your research needs accordingly:

Books

  • Wednesday, December 10, 2014

This is the last day to submit requests for book loans.  Requests submitted after this date will be held for processing until January 5, 2015 when the library re-opens following Winter Break.

Articles

  • Friday, December 12, 2014

We may be able to obtain some articles after this date; however, some requests submitted after Friday, Dec 12, 2014 may be held for processing until January 5, 2015 when the library re-opens following Winter Break.

Extended Campus and Desktop Delivery Requests for items owned by the University Libraries

  • Monday, December 22, 2014

This is the last day to submit requests for Virginia Tech-owned items to be delivered to Extended Campus and Desktop Delivery users.  Requests submitted after this date will be held for processing until January 5, 2015 when the library re-opens following Winter Break.

Please continue to submit your requests to ILLiad and access any electronic delivery articles during the Winter Break.  Held requests will appear with a “Held” status on ILLiad until processing resumes on January 5th and the availability of lending libraries. 

The Interlibrary Loan services will cease at 4:00pm on Wednesday, December 17th, 2014, and resume at 8:00am on January 5th, 2015

Newman Library will have reduced hours during the Winter Break.
