*Requesting Books from Norris Medical Library:
If you are a UPC faculty, staff, or student and need a book from the Norris Medical Library, sign-in to your IDD Account and fill out a loan request form. If the item available from Norris, the item will sent over to Leavey Library for pick-up. If it's not available from Norris, it will be processed as a normal interlibrary loan book.
**Requesting Audio-Visual Materials:
- Audio-visual material such as DVD, CD, VHS, and other recordings are difficult to find. Please note that these types of requests may require more time to locate and borrow.
- IDD may cancel requests for audio-visual materials at any time when abuse of the service is suspected. This includes excessive requesting of popular films and television programs on DVD, audio books, and music CDs.
- IDD staff may request documentation from an instructor to confirm materials requested support research and/or coursework.
