Can I request a print book through Interlibrary Loan if we own the ebook?

Answer

Yes, there is a way to do this. Log into BorrowDirect directly on this page: https://library.brown.edu/borrowing/directborrow.php

Don't log into the little easyBorrow/Worldcat box, but rather, go down to the BorrowDirect search box and enter your Brown ID Barcode, then request the book through that catalog. That should override our system that says we have the book.

If you are still unable to get the book through BorrowDirect, you can submit a request through illiad.brown.edu and add a note that you want the hard copy, not the ebook.
