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.
