Many, perhaps all, of the articles needed for your research may be found in one of the library’s full-text databases.  However, magazine or journal articles not available in those databases may be requested through Interlibrary Loan. Most articles ordered are available at no cost to you; you will be notified when a cost is applied to the request.

  • Interlibrary Loan: use this service when you absolutely cannot find the material you need through Drury/Swan/Mobius.
  • Tutorial: here is a tutorial on using ILL.
