COMM1100: Communication in Action: Interlibrary Loan & Copy Service

What is Interlibrary Loan?

When searching, you might find books or articles that only have a full-text option of 'Request through Interlibrary Loan'.  

This means that we will need to request a copy be sent from another Library, whether just down the road or across the globe.

In a database search, simply click the link to start your request.  Articles are generally available as PDF documents within 24 hours (although, often faster)!

Once it arrives, you'll get an email with directions for accessing the file.

To start a request, visit the Interlibrary Loan & Article Service link on the library homepage.

What is the Interlibrary Loan & Article Copy Service?

This short video will explain how this service can help you with your research!

Article Copy Service

Sometimes the materials you need will only be available in a physical format at the Library.  Never fear!  You can request that we scan articles or book chapters from print or microform formats, and make them available to you in the same, easy way that we can for Interlibrary Loan!

Use the Interlibrary Loan & Article Service link from the Library homepage to have us scan these resources.  Most requests are filled within 48 hours!
