Yes, you can have materials sent to another address during the summer. Below are directions on how to do so.

1 - Login to your ILLiad account
2 - Click the "Change User Information"  button.
3 - Scroll down to the two Preferred Delivery lines. If both already say "Mail to Address" do not change them. If they do not, choose "Mail to home address" from the pull down menu.
4 - Change your address information so that your HOME ADDRESS appears.
5 - IMPORTANT: Scroll down further and change your Customer Status to "Staff." NOT faculty.(This will not have any impact on your user privileges but is important for us to correctly process your materials for delivery.)
6 - Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Submit User Information button. Note that changing your status temporarily to "Staff" does not alter your privileges in any way but does allow the ILLiad software to accurately flag your materials for home delivery.
To have books requested using Summit mailed to you contact us to discuss the feasibility of doing so.
If you have questions or need help contact the Western Libraries' Document Delivery office for assistance: 360-650-3076.
Remember that you must undo these changes when you return to campus and again want to have materials delivered to your department. If you use an Outlook calendar we suggest making and "appointment" to change your ILLiad data on the day you return to campus.  Delivery to departments takes place whenever classes are in session.
