If in doing research you run across the title of an article from a  magazine, journal or newspaper and you’re not sure if the library has access to it, the first thing you should do is check our list of serials holdings to double check that we don’t have access to the article in any of our databases. If you still can’t find the article you need, you can fill in an interlibrary loan article request form after logging into the ILLiad system on our library's homepage. 

If while searching one of the library’s databases you encounter an article that does not offer the full text but does offer an option called "Link to Fulltext Options" select it to link to the full text of the article.  If this option is not offered then click on the link that says "Request Through Interlibrary Loan." This will take you to the ILLiad login page (if you’re not already logged on). Once you login you will see the information for that article filled in on the request form. Check that the information is correct and hit submit to request an electronic copy of that article.   It should be sent to your ILLiad account within 3 to 5 days.
