Welcome to the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Article Request Page

The purpose of this service is to give faculty, students and staff a way to request the full text of articles not directly available through library subscriptions. Our interlibrary loan (ILL) service is run by dedicated staff available to assist with any questions you have.  

Top 3 places to look before submitting an ILL request

1.  Have you tried looking in Bearcat Search?


2. Are you looking for an article in a specific journal? Try searching by publication name or ISSN in a Bearcat Journal Search.

3. Have you tried to  Search for your article title in Google Scholar?
