Distance Education Services Coordinator
IUP will provide IUP-owned materials, books, and articles to the Maryland Safety Science cohorts. These will be mailed directly to the student’s home. Requests for such materials can be made through the Maryland Safety Science webpage. The students will be responsible for the timely return of IUP books to the IUP Libraries via UPS.
For articles only, if IUP does not own the publication, the students may submit an ILLiad request for such materials. Whenever possible, this material will be provided to the student electronically.
Standard interlibrary loan policies do not allow us to forward books borrowed from other institutions.
For questions regarding this policy and any other Interlibrary Loan/Circulation questions, please contact Assistant Dean Katherine Terpis at
or at 724-357-2115.
