Regis Online: Interlibrary Loan: How does it work?

Options

There are two options for requesting materials. 
  1. One is based on viewing your search results in an EBSCO database such as CINAHL. 
  2. The other is for when you have a citation in hand, such as when you are reviewing a reference list from a journal article you are using for your research.
New Information!

ILL upgraded to a new portal in August 2018.  Below are instructions for how to use the new ILL portal.  If you have questions, email interlibrary.loan@regiscollege.edu

 

Do you really need to request an article?

Before you request an article through ILL, determine whether the article is available in other ways.
  • Make sure you search for the article in our databases.  PowerSearch is great for a search covering most databases.
  • Consider searching for the article using Google or Google Scholar.  A surprising number of articles are available on the open web.
  • If there is an option that says Article Full Text  or AVAILABLE FULL TEXT next to Request from Interlibrary Loan, click on that.  Most times it will link to the publisher's website where you can access the article right away.

 

TIP:  Don't forget to explore the eBook collection!  The books in this collection are academic and may help you with your research!
