Library Offers New Get It! Service
Did you know that the library will now pull your books for you? A new service called "Get It!" will provide system-wide paging and direct lending of library materials, starting with the UMD and Twin Cities University Libraries.
Besides the benefit of having materials pulled and held for you at the Circulation desk, Get It! offers the ability to manage renewals through "Your Account" on the UMD Library Web site, enjoy longer loan periods, and renew multiple times as long as items are not recalled by others. Users can choose the most convenient pickup or return campus location for each request. UMD and all of the larger campus libraries on the Twin Cities campus are current options.
You can search the MNCAT all-campus catalog, check the availability of holdings throughout the UM system, and then click "Get It / Recall" to order an available copy or recall one that is checked out. The item will be shipped via courier if coming from another campus location.
For more information, go to http://www.d.umn.edu/lib/circ/get-it.htm, stop at the Circulation desk, or contact Paul Hanson in the UMD Get It!/Recall office, (firstname.lastname@example.org, 218-726-6566).
Is Interlibrary Loan Still Available?
Yes! You will still need to use ILLiad to request articles and materials that aren't available at UMD or elsewhere in the University of Minnesota system. However, if the item you need is owned by one of the participating UM Libraries, you will find that Get It! is the better service to use.
