4. What are TANs and where can I purchase them?
TANs, transaction numbers, are required to place a interlibrary loan request. TANs can be purchased in the Central Library (Bldg. 32) and in all Campus Department Libraries. The fee includes the cost of the interlibrary loan. University faculty and staff members charging the interlibrary loan fee to their cost center may have TANs sent directly to them per e-mail. Please use the transfer form.
Upon completion of the order form, you will be asked to enter your TAN number. The TAN is invalidated as soon as the order form is accepted. The status of your interlibrary loan request can be seen online in your personal library account under "active interlibrary loans".
