Faculty Book Delivery Information

Information on the Belknap campus book delivery service

How it Works

  1. Submit the signed use agreement forms: one from the Department Chair and one from the individual faculty member. Both are required for the book delivery service.The forms are located at: E-mail the completed forms to ill@louisville.edu. Once the forms are received, the department will be added to our route.
  2. Submit your book request through your Interlibrary Loan account as a Document Delivery request. Please note that all incoming holds and ILL borrowing requests will also be delivered to your department.
  3. Sit back, relax, and wait for your book to be delivered to your department. Since we do not deliver to individual offices your department will distribute the books.
