ILLiad to Be Unavailable Monday, December 1st

Next week will bring some temporary down time for our interlibrary loan service as we perform a system upgrade. ILLiad will be unavailable for requests between the hours of 12:00-2:00 p.m. on Monday, December 1st.

Prior to 12:00 p.m. on Monday we will temporarily disable our interlibrary loan web pages at http://libguides.montevallo.edu/illiad. Over the next several hours we will still accept requests for articles and books; for help submitting a request during this time, please use our Ask a Librarian web pages. Remember that any electronic requests submitted during the maintenance window will not be saved in our system. We will post to social media on Monday once the system upgrade is complete.

Thanks for your patience as we perform this update to our systems!
