From the library's home page,, click on ALLIES (bottom right of box, underneath the magnifying glass). On the next page, choose University of Alabama, tuscaloosa and click Connect.Next page type in the title of the book, Theories of counseling and therapy: An experiential approach and click search. The next page should include the information about the book, click on Place Requests (top of page under the orange box). Log in with your barcode and last name. Your barcode is your banner id with 20 in front and 1 at the end, so for example if your banner id were 123456789, your barcode would be 201234567891. (if you have had your id card replaced, the number on the end increases so if you have replaced your ID Card once, then replace the final digit 1 with 2.
If you have replaced your ID Card twice, then replace the final digit 2 with 3.This pattern continues up to 8 ID Card replacements.)

After you log in, the next page should have Allies Request in the drop down, click ok, then on the next page, click Submit Request.

It will take 3 to 5 days to receive the book, you will get an email when it comes in.
