The individual lenders determine what form the material is in when it is sent to us. They may only have an item available in microfiche or may not have the capacity to send an article electronically. Sometimes, hard copies are much easier to read than electronic copies. Copyright laws may prevent electronic transmission of restricted articles. We send you what is given to us by the lender. They determine how to distribute their material and in what form. If microfilm or microfiche are not appropriate for your location please indicate that in the notes field of the ILLiad request form. We will do everything we can to obtain the item in a format that is usable to you in your location.
