If we don't have access to an article

You can request an electronic copy of it from another library using Interlibrary Loan. This can usually take 1-2 days.



Use databases to find journals, preprint articles, published articles, conference proceedings, patents, technical reports, and other e-publications.

If you are unsure of where to start, contact your librarian, Alyssa Young.
