There are two ways to fill out a request form:
In either case, make sure the form is as complete as possible. If you don't enter sufficient information, local staff may need to contact you with questions before processing your request.
You can leave notes for the Interlibrary Loan staff in the Special Instructions box, for instance if you only want a particular diagram from an article, or only a specific edition. Note that entering anything in the special instructions box will slow down your request, as a staff member will have to manually authorize your request.
make sure to check your library's RACER charging policies / choose Loan if you need a whole book or journal choose Copy if you need only a short section. This choice will affect the form's copyright type and format fields / if you only need a particular chapter or article, enter as much information as you have about it here / dates need to be in this format. 60 days is the default / if text is entered, your request will require manual authoriazation (this is slower) / this tells you where the item is available. If more than one location is listed, RACER will move through the list automatically, should it be unavailable at the first library.
