The Auburn University Libraries have moved to a new Interlibrary Loan management system.  This system, named OCLC ILLiad, will simplify the request process by allowing patrons to:  enter address and other personal information only once and view the status and history of all ILL/AUBIExpress requests within one form. 

Access to the new system is available by clicking on the "Interlibrary Loan/AUBIExpress" link located near the center of the A.U. Libraries homepage .  The system will request your Auburn user name and password.  If you have any questions about this service, please contact Pambanisha King at illhelp@auburn.edu or 844-1728.

Auburn University is switching over to a new electronic management system called Banner.  The change will affect Auburn University employees and students and other patrons of the A.U. Libraries as the University switches over from using Social Security Card numbers to an alternate form of identification for logging in and using University services.  This will also include access to library services including document delivery services, logging in from off campus to electronic databases, and the checking out of library materials.  Library patrons most likely to be affected currently include retired faculty, adjunct faculty, non-Auburn University patrons, and some patrons whose identification numbers end with the number 5.

If you have a problem with logging into any library service or system, please contact the Circulation Department at  844-1701.  For problems with Document Delivery Services, please contact 844-1745 or illhelp@auburn.edu .

From 4:45 p.m. on August 10 until 7:45 a.m. on August 19, access to the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) and AUBIExpress web forms will be restricted.  The Library will be installing a new interlibrary loan system called ILLiad.  ILLiad will allow users to track their AUBIExpress and Interlibrary Loan requests and will provide detailed request histories.  Please be aware of this necessary disruption in interlibrary loan and document delivery service.

Please contact Pambanisha King (844-1745) or Glenn Anderson (844-1741) at the Draughon Library for more information.

In order to help patrons better figure out the location of where to find items in the Auburn University Libraries, online floor plans now appear online when conducting a search through AUBIEcat, the Auburn University Libraries' online catalog. The floor plans can be enlarged for better visibility by clicking on them. If an item is located in either the Library of Architecture, Design, and Construction (LADC) or the Veterinary Medical Library, the icon instructs patrons to click on it for a campus map, showing the location of these branch libraries. If an item is available electronically, the icon clearly indicates that the item is an electronic resource and clearly indicates how to gain access.

AUBIEcat, the A.U. Libraries' online catalog, is available by clicking on the "Books and Journals" link located in the upper left hand side of the A.U. Libraries homepage.

AUBIEcat, the Auburn University Libraries' online catalog, now features a timeout timer located on the lower left hand side of the screen. The timer provides a running record of the amount of time left before the five-minute searching time limit of AUBIEcat is up. Everytime you begin a new search, the timer resets itself to five (5) minutes.

When you click on the "Books and Journals" link, located in the upper left hand side of the A.U. Libraries homepage, you are using AUBIEcat, the online catalog.

The Auburn University Libraries online catalog, AUBIEcat, now defaults to the Keyword search screen rather than the "Basic" (no link provided here because the system times out after five minutes) search screen. The reason for making this change is to make it more convenient for the majority of library patrons who are more likely to be looking for library materials about a certain topic rather than for a specific author or title.

The online catalog ("AUBIEcat") is located by clicking on the Books and Journals link located in the upper left hand side of the AU Libraries homepage .
