Regis Online: Interlibrary Loan: Tips for making the most of ILL!

Tips!

In order to get the most value out of the ILL service, spend a few minutes evaluating your request.  It helps to understand:

  • What type of article are you seeking?  Is it from a magazine, newspaper, journal, newsletter, press release, poster session, conference proceeding, etc?  Some are more useful than others, and some may not fit the requirements of your assignment.
  • How long it is it?  If it is too short it will be of little use. Beware of 1/2 page, or 1 page articles.  If it is too long --  over 50 pages --  we cannot obtain it for you.

See the handout below for more tips on evaluating an article.
