Looking for electronic access to journal articles? Most of the time that's not a problem: find an article in a database, click the button, & you're taken right to the journal or the article (video).
Occasionally, the library doesn't have electronic access, but does have the journal in print. What do you do then? Choose the Request Delivery Service option and use document delivery. Library staff will photocopy the article, then send it to you via email as a link to the PDF. This service can take up to 48 hours, but you often receive the article the same day. You'll need to use the link within 2 weeks, but once you download the article, it's yours forever.
If the library doesn't have a copy in print or electronically, choose the Request Delivery Service and use InterLibrary Loan (ILL). We'll get a copy from another library. This service takes 5-10 business days (usually 5). As with the document delivery service, you'll receive a link to the PDF via email.
