        Requesting Journal Articles Through Interlibrary Loan

        If you found an article citation in one of the EbscoHost databases, you can use the “Request document via interlibrary loan” link on the detailed record to request the item.  If you have just a citation and want to find or request the article,

        • Check Journal Locator for the journal title.  If we have access to the title, choose the appropriate database to find the article. 
        • If we don’t have access to the journal title or the specific article, please fill out the Article request form and our staff will request the article for you.  Please fill out as much of the information as possible.
