In June, the Hardin Library Interlibrary Loan Department started a new service: desktop delivery. Now, when an article that you have requested is sent to our office from the lending library in an electronic format, we send the article on to you by posting it to a server and sending you an e-mail with instructions on how to retrieve it. Once a document has been posted to the server it remains there for fourteen days or until you have viewed it five times. This new service allows you to receive your material in a timelier manner, and also to save the document on your computer.
Taking advantage of this service is easy. You need to have Adobe Acrobat 4.0 or higher installed on your computer, and you need to include your e-mail address on all interlibrary loan request forms (the requester name must match the e-mail address to receive articles through this method).
