Library patrons with a valid Indiana University Library Identification Number (Barcode) may use this form to request that items not yet on shelf be rush cataloged. We will prepare the items for your use and place them on hold for you to check out. This form will allow you to request rush cataloging for two categories of items:
Within IUCAT: you may come across a record for an item that's not on the shelf yet. This form allows you to request that the item in one of the three following categories be Rush Cataloged, so that you can check it out.
Within ProQuest Dissertations and Theses Global database: you may find a record for an IU dissertation that is not yet in IUCAT. If you complete this request form, we will check to see whether we have received this dissertation and, if so, Rush Catalog it for your use. We receive and catalog dissertations from all schools and departments of IU Bloomington except the School of Music and the School of Law.
