Requesting an Article

If you find a citation for an article you would like to obtain, it is fairly easy to request it through the library's Interlibrary Loan service. There are a few things to check before submitting this request, however.

First, check the Journal Titles A-Z list to determine whether or not the library provides access to the journal.  If the library has a subscription to the journal and the article is available in print, microform or online, you should not submit a request for the article. If you need help with this process, contact a librarian.

If the library does not subscribe to - or have access to - the journal article, please submit an Interlibrary Loan Article Request Form (you will be prompted to login to our Interlibrary Loan System using your Portal username and password). 

To complete this form, you will need to provide information about the article you are requesting. You can either copy and paste the citation from a database, or type in the information if you have located the citation in a printed reference list.

It is helpful if you provide the source of your citation. It is not necessary to identify a library that has a subscription to the journal.

When the library receives a copy of the article, you will be notified via your Castleton email.
