Request Articles

Request the full text of articles through our interlibrary loan (ILL) service.   Please no more than 10 active submissions at one time. 

1. Have you already checked Bearcat Search?



Not every database will appear in your search results. Be sure to check out our standalone databases too.

2. Check Bearcat Journal Search

Looking for an article in a specific journal? Search for the publication name or ISSN on Bearcat Journal Search.

3. Check Google Scholar

Does Lander not have access to the article? Search for your article title in Google Scholar.

4. Request through Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Still can't find the article you are looking for? Did you find a citation that we don't have full text access to?  Use the form below to request the article interlibrary loan (ILL).

Don't pay for it.

If you come across an article online that asks you to pay for it, don't do it. Follow the steps on this page to find access at Lander or request it through interlibrary loan (ILL).

It may take time to get your article.

Requests are processed during normal business hours (no weekends).  If you require a short turnaround time schedule an appointment with a librarian to see if they can help locate an article in our collection that may meet your research need.

Additionally, when our borrowers submit more than five requests in one day, those requests will be integrated into the processing workflow whenever volume allows.

When will I get it?

Articles usually take 3 days to 1 week.

Where do I pick it up?

Typically, the article will be sent to your Lander email address. However, you may need to pick it up at the library service desk.
