Library ILL - Request Articles

Please fill out the form as completely as possible for best results

Use this form to request articles from journals, newspapers, etc. not available in Leslie J. Savage Library databases or Google.  Please allow 7 - 10 days for processing & delivery. Often your requested article will simply be forwarded to the email indicated below. If this is not possible, you will be notified when the item has arrived and we will hold it at the circulation desk for you. 

When filling out this form:
 

  • You must have a current Leslie J. Savage Library card.
  • Please check OneSearch, particularly Journal Finder before completing this form; the library may have access to the  journal or newspaper you are seeking.
  • Use a separate form for each request.

Due to limited staffing, we ask that you request a maximum of five (5) items per day.  Requests of an academic nature have first priority and will be processed before leisure items.
