Interlibrary Loan Requests for Articles

Requesting articles we don’t own has gotten even easier. Instead of searching NExpress first, you now can go straight to ILLiad. ILLiad will check the collections of all libraries, including NExpress, and it will send most requests directly to the owning library with no mediation from us. You should receive your article in a few days.

TIP: To take advantage of this fast, direct connection to other libraries, be sure to include the journal’s ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) in your request.

Need a refresher on how to find articles? See Find Articles (shortcut: http://go.middlebury.edu/findarticles).

NExpress ArticleReach Ending, NExpress loans to continue.

By consensus of the NExpress Consortium, NExpress ArticleReach has been retired.  With all of the participating NExpress schools now using Rapid it was determined that we could provide the same service to our patrons while using one fewer system for processing requests.    All articles currently delivered to a My Midcat account will remain for the normal delivery period. 

NExpress service for loan materials will continue, but all article requests should now all be submitted into ILLiad for processing.  To take advantage of RapidILL processing, please include an ISSN in all article requests.
