Books on Demand
Need a book from the AU Library shelves? We will go and get it for you! First, you must find the book you want. You can use the ALADIN Catalog to locate your book. When you see the book on the screen, then click on the yellow sticky note that says, "Request through Consortium Loan Services." Even if it is here at AU, clicking the button will activate the Consortium Loan software to tell staff at AU Library—not just the other consortium libraries —that you are looking for the book. If it is available here at AU, you will receive an email message to let you know that the book is waiting for you to pick it up and check it out at the Borrowing Desk. If the book is off the shelf here at AU, we will automatically place a request for you to get it from another library. If you have any questions, please contact the Borrowing Desk. This service is available on a test basis Monday-Friday. Books on Demand is a new service that just started in 2010, so we hope you will try it out and let us know what you think!
