If you find an article for which we do not have access electronically or in print, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). There is no charge for this service, and the article will be delivered to you as a PDF, usually within about 48 hours.

To make an ILL request, you have a few options.

1) Log into your ILL account and enter a request manually. The first time you log in to ILL, you will be prompted to fill out a short form, but you only have to do this once.

2) In Sherlock and many other databases, you will see either a link that says "Request via Interlibrary Loan" (see below). This will autofill an ILL request for you.
