Online students have access to the research articles they need, whether the Library subscribes or not.

To order a copy of an article that is not held by us, find the article in the Library catalog (for best results, search for the full title within quotation marks), and then click the button to "Request item from Interlibrary Loan." If you have questions, contact the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Department.

Please note: The Library does not retrieve books for off-campus students or send out our own copies. What we recommend is using the ILL program at your local public library to request the book(s) you need. Almost every library participates in ILL; if it's not included on their website, call and ask directly for the ILL department.
