Residential Delivery for Distance Learners

Books that are owned by IUP or requested from another institution through interlibrary loan can be delivered to the residential home address of active students who live further than 15 miles from the IUP Indiana campus and who are unable to pick up or return items to Stapleton Library. Any articles requested from IUP or through interlibrary loan will be delivered to the patron as an electronic PDF.

Applying for Residential Delivery

Complete the online application to establish your residential delivery status. To qualify for residential delivery, active students must meet the following criteria:

  • The student is unable to pick up or return items to Stapleton Library.
  • The student lives further than 15 miles from the IUP Indiana campus.
  • The student must register with our ILLiad Interlibrary Loan service, and make sure their mailing address in ILLiad is complete and current.

You must complete the application each semester. Do not submit an application until you actually want to request a book. Patrons will receive an email notification when the application has been approved.
