The Library Intra-Campus Delivery Service (LIDS) is a service providing free delivery of Library materials to UT Southwestern faculty and staff offices on campus. Items for delivery include:

  • Books owned by the Library that are eligible for check-out
  • Books, journals articles, etc. requested on InterLibrary Loan (ILL) from another library

To request delivery via LIDS:

  • Click on InterLibrary Loan (ILLiad), which is located on the top navigation menu under "Services" on the Library Web site.
  • Enter your ILLiad username and password.
  • On the next page, click on "New Request."
  • Enter the appropriate information.
  • At the "How would you like us to deliver this item?" box, select "Hand Delivery" from the drop-down menu.

Some tips:

  • A Library card is required for access to ILLiad.
  • Students and residents/fellows are not eligible for delivery service.
  • If a book, article, etc. must be obtained from another library, there is a $5.00 charge for regular service and $15.00 for rush service.
  • Faculty or staff who only want a book if it is in the Library collection must put "DO NOT BORROW" in the "Notes" field of the request. (To determine if a book is in the Library collection, check the Library's catalog.)
  • Enter the room number for delivery in the "Notes" field. If no room number is given, staff will call to verify the location.
  • A signature is required upon delivery. If no one is available to sign, the package will be returned to the Library and delivery will be attempted the next day.
