Most of our online databases used for finding articles include “Check for Full Text” links on articles that are not available online in that database. Those links go to a form that displays all of the online sources we have for the article, and our print holdings (if any) when there are no online sources.

If there are no online sources for the article, the form includes a button to request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL):

Our ILL staff will determine the fastest way to get the article.  You will receive an email from our ILL department with a link to a scanned version of the article. Articles that are sent from another library will take longer to arrive, however.  

After you click the “Request Retrieval/ILL” button you’ll be taken to the ILL system to complete the request.
