Feeling ILL--the scholar's cure

Spring break's over and now you're feeling a bit ill. Could it be because you can't find that book? Try ILL.

You can still get that book or article you want even if it's not available in our BSC Library, by simply going through ILL--InterLibrary Loan. There's a quick link to the InterLibrary Loan form on the Library's home page. Just go to the "Request Forms" link and select InterLibrary Loan.

After you tell us what materials you need, our ILL department will search for other libraries that will provide them. It usually takes about a week and often articles will be delivered electronically. Books must come through the mail and so they take a bit longer. The ILL office will notify you when your materials are available. But don't delay--the earlier you place your requests, the better.

So let your Library help cure your ills with ILLs.

QEP 3.13 ?!?!

The mystery behind the QEP 3.13 signs that have been appearing around campus will be revealed on Tuesday, March 13, at 4:00, in the Bruno Great Hall. Please plan to attend the all-campus gathering to learn about QEP and its role in BSC's upcoming reaffirmation process with SACS, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. In the words of President Krulak, "a successful reaffirmation of our SACS accreditation is the foundation upon which we all stand. Nothing we do over the next 18 months will be more important." Come find out why!
