Beginning Saturday, July 19th, 2014 at 10:00 PM EST, access to ODU ILLiad Interlibrary Loan accounts and webpages will be unavailable due to server maintenance. This entire process is expected to be completed by 3:00 AM EST on Sunday, July 20th, 2014, after which, normal access to ILLiad should be available again. Patrons will be unable to access their ILLiad accounts or place new interlibrary loan requests during this time.
Please be sure to place any new interlibrary loan requests before this outage, or when the system is available again on Sunday. Thank you and we apologize for any inconvenience this brief outage may cause.
The Interlibrary Loan office has relocated to the 3rd floor Digital Services Center. We anticipate the unit to remain at this location through the FY2015 academic year.

Materials include handwritten and published scores, journals and speeches, photographs, and awards.

He is also the recipient of the American Music Center's Founders' Award for Lifetime Achievement.

The Knovel Library includes leading reference works and databases covering material properties, process and design information, best practices, and equations and formulations for specific industries and engineering disciplines.
Recent changes on the Knovel Web site are causing links to Knovel ebooks in our Discovery Tool and ODU online catalog to fail. When users click on “Connect to this resource (Authorized users only),” the page refreshes but no connection occurs. Libraries staff is aware of the problem and working with Knovel to correct it.
In the meantime, users can work around the problem by connecting through the generic online catalog link to Knovel (http://iii.lib.odu.edu/record=b2534717), and searching the desired title on the vendor site. Access to the content is intact. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have the issue remedied soon.
In Google Scholar, “Full Text @ ODU” links appearing in search results are not working from off-campus. We are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. The links do work from on-campus computers. We apologize for the inconvenience.
