The RACER Interlibrary Loan system will be changed slightly on December 8, 2008 so that, on login, you will be able to start from a screen which offers clearer options for searching by a known author or title — a logical approach to making an interlibrary loan request.
Reminder: On RACER, it is not mandatory that you use the search screen in order to place a request! Instead:
- If you already have the citation information in hand for the article or chapter or book which you need to order, just click on the “Blank Request Form” link on the left navigation column of the RACER screen, once you have logged in, as follows:

The maintenance window for the RACER Interlibrary Loan System, formerly scheduled for Saturday April 12th, has been postponed to Thursday April 17, 2008 beginning at 5 PM and ending at 2 AM on Friday, April 18.
During that time, RACER will be unavailable for use in order for the database to be migrated to a new server. These changes are not directly related to the RACER software itself, and as such there will be no changes to the look or functionality of RACER once the server migration has been completed.
We regret this interruption in our interlibrary loan service and thank RACER users for their patience during this necessary system upgrade.
