Using ILL in Library Databases


You can also submit ILL requests for articles and book chapters when you are using databases such as EBSCOhost, SciFinder, PsycINFO, and more.  Follow these steps to do so:

  1. Identify the article or other item you'd like to read.
  2. Locate a link on the article record called "Check for Full Text" or a similar phrase (examples: "Check Local Holdings", "Other Sources" ).  See example below.
  3. Click on this link.
  4. A new tab or window will open in your browser.  This will show you:
    • If our library has the full-text available in a different database; if so, a direct link will be provided.
    • If we don't have it, a link to request it via Interlibrary Loan.
  5. Click on "Request This Item"
  6. Complete the form, and then wait for an email from with instructions for downloading your article!
