Once you’ve received your document and are viewing it in Acrobat Reader, all you need to do is select the File option from the pull down menu and choose Save As. Type in a filename which relates to the actual document and be sure to include the .PDF extension so that Acrobat Reader will recognize the file type should you wish to view the document again.
It is suggested that you save any downloaded file prior to printing.
Please keep in mind that it is against copyright law to make or forward copies of articles to others. It also tends to gobble up considerable amounts of hard drive space by keeping old documents around. A good practice may be to delete any documents once your papers or classes are finished.
The MS U Library assumes responsibility for the costs of Interlibrary Borrowing material up to $25.00 per item for your research needs. If you see markings on your document that indicate there was a charge for the material or an invoice is included with the document, this will be paid for by the MSU Library.
Logon to ILLiad. On the main menu, choose “View/Download Electronically Received Articles.” This will give you a list of all items that you have waiting to view or download.
Your ILLiad account is automatically set for electronic delivery.
ILLiad sends you an e-mail notification for each item received. That e-mail will include information about the delivery method, however, the majority of articles will be delivered electronically.
Even though the document delivery website has been developed to be compatible with nearly any browser, there may be times when your browser appears to stop working, or lock up. If this appears to be the case, we recommend that you contact the appropriate technical help staff from the Library Tech Help (406) 994-3171, your department, or ITC (Information Technology Center) Help Desk at (406) 994-1777.
Please call the Interlibrary Loan office at (406) 994-3161 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Electronic delivery is the ILLiad default. Paper delivery will be provided only if the paper copy the lending library sent will not scan well.
