Requesting Articles & Chapters


Articles and Book Chapters can be requested through ILLiad.


When your PDF is available, you will receive a notification email instructing you to log into ILLiad.

  • Choose View and then Download PDF.
  • Download your PDF and save it immediately. PDFs will be available in your ILLiad account for 30 days from receipt.


The library pays copyright fees ranging from $25-$50 for articles published within the past 5 years. We perform an Open Access search to see if we can find free copies before paying these fees, and may deliver a link to an Open Access title instead of a PDF.

If you need multiple articles from a recent publication, please contact the ILL office.
