Library Express

New & Improved Interlibrary Loan - Tipasa is Here!

Library Express at EKU Libraries is switching to a new Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery system called Tipasa. 


Changes with Tipasa:

  • We are unable to migrate your Library Express request history from ILLiad to Tipasa. Please make sure you print your request history, if needed, before August 27, 2021.

  • We are unable to migrate your received articles from ILLiad to Tipasa. For those of you who have PDFs of articles or other items still in ILLiad, you will have 30 days to retrieve those articles. Requests for articles or book chapters that have not yet come in will be sent to our new Tipasa system and can be accessed there. Please make sure you download your received articles before August 27, 2021.
  • A link to the article or book chapter you requested will be available via your Tipasa account for 30 days and can be used to view the article up to 5 times. Print or save the article to access it beyond these limits.
