The Faculty Book Transit Service is a pilot program developed for transport of Library and ILL materials to and from Faculty at ESR/Bethany. This service is only provided for those ESR/Bethany faculty who work on-campus. Remote faculty may use our Document Delivery service to receive materials from the Earlham Libraries's collections.
Faculty may request materials held in the Earlham Libraries collections through the Faculty Book Transit form in ILLiad. (NOTE: First time users of ILLiad will need to complete a short, one-time registration form prior to submitting a request.) Once the items are located by library staff, they will be checked out to the faculty member and prepared for transit. Materials will be delivered within 2 business days.
Items requested through ILL will also be delivered through the Faculty Book Transit Service once they have arrived in Lilly Library. An email will be sent to faculty informing them that their book has arrived; the item will then be prepared for transit and will arrive within 2 business days.
Items will be delivered to the designated drop-off location for ESR and Bethany. Each Seminary has their own drop-off/pick-up point (at Bethany, the desk of Brian Schleeper; at ESR, the desk of Gail Bingham). Seminary staff will then deliver the items to the appropriate faculty member/mailbox.
ESR/Bethany faculty may also request pick-up of Library and ILL materials when they are no longer needed. To request a pick-up, faculty must fill out the pick-up reqeust form. This form may be filled out by an individual faculty member, or by the administrative assistant who staffs the designated drop-off/pick-up location. It is expected that items will be turned in at the designated pick-up location on the same day that the pick-up request is submitted.
Materials will be picked up within 2 business days of the receipt of the pick-up request.
