ECU's Joyner Library and Laupus Health Sciences Library each has a separate interlibrary loan service. Both use the ILLiad request management software.

Laupus Library serves as the primary library for the Division of Health Sciences: the Brody School of Medicine, the College of Allied Health Sciences, the College of Nursing, the School of Dental Medicine, the East Carolina Heart Institute, and the East Carolina Diabetes and Obesity Institute. If you are a student or an employee of the Division of Health Sciences, you should place your interlibrary loan requests with Laupus' Interlibrary Loan office. ECU students, faculty, and staff use their PirateIDs and Passphrases to login to ILLiad. Laupus Library also provides interlibrary loan service to Vidant Medical Center employees and Eastern AHEC members -- click for details on how to register.

Joyner Library serves as the primary library for all other ECU students, faculty, and staff and offers its own Interlibrary Loan service. ECU students, faculty, and staff use their PirateIDs and Passphrases to login to ILLiad. Joyner Library also provides interlibrary loan service to retired faculty/staff, Friends of Joyner Library, participating Educator Card Schools -- click for details on how to register. 

May I visit and use both libraries?

Yes, all members of the ECU community, from all divisions and programs, may visit and use materials in both Joyner Library and Laupus Health Sciences Library, including databases, reference and journal collections, course reserves, and circulating collections. 

May I request materials from one library be delivered to the other library?

Yes. For books and media items, you may use the Place Hold feature in the Classic Catalog to have items delivered to the other library. For scanned copies of articles and book chapters, place your request through interlibrary loan.
