RUSS 401 - Independent Study: Requesting an Article

Now That I Have Identified an Article How Do I Get a Copy?

Sometimes the full-text of an article isn't available in the database.  If you click the FIND IT! link, and still have no full-text access to the article, you can request a copy of the article via our interlibrary loan system called ILLiad by clicking the link Get a copy via Interlibrary Loan.

When you click the Get a copy... link you will be taken to the Illiad log in page.  Once you log in, the form should auto-fill with the elements of the article citation.  It is always good to be sure the necessary fields are completed properly.  Note: It is helpful to create your account in ILLiad prior to beginning your research.  That way when you click on the link you can quickly log in and complete your article request.

Most articles are received electronically.  You will recieve an e-mail message indicating that your article has arrived and can be accessed via Illiad.  Simply log in to Illiad and click on the Electronically Received Articles link in the left-hand column.  Note:  Articles received electronically are only available for approximately 30 days.  It is recommended that you save the article some place other than in Illiad.
