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.

    We’ve made the ISSN a required field in ILLiad, to encourage everyone to include it when submitting ILL requests. (Although any character in the ISSN field will make it possible to submit the Article/Photocopy request form.)
