Get Articles Fast

Checklist for Getting Articles Fast

1. Check the library's Ejournals list to see if we have access to the journal you need.

Search for Online Journals

 

2. Check the library catalog to see if we have the journal you need in paper or microform

Note: If the library has your article in our current periodicals, bound print or microform collections, we'll scan them for you and deliver them to your ILLiad account so you can read them online!

 

3. If the article is not available locally, use ILLiad to request it from the broader community
