InterLibrary Loan (ILL) Requesting Articles
Article Delivery & Turnaround Time • Articles are scanned and delivered electronically • Turnaround is 24 hours or less if the citation is complete and the journal is held by one of the 70 libraries in our consortia, Rapid and GWLA • Incomplete citations require mediation and additional processing by OSU Library staff • A complete citation includes the ISSN
Using InterLibrary Loan There are a couple of ways to submit an ILL request: • Type information into the form on the ILL website: http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/ill/ • Import a complete citation directly from a database to the ILL form. • Preferred for accuracy and speed
Importing Citations • Go to the database that cites the article you need: MLA, for example. • Do a keyword search (a couple of words from article title and author’s last name should be enough)
