Locating Articles

You might find articles you'd like to read using the library's databases, but also through Google or Google Scholar. Before you pay for anything, be sure to check to see if the library already owns it or provides electronic access.

From our databases, use the link to Find it @ LU to locate an item you'd like to read. In Google or Google Scholar, click on More at the end of the list of commands for the item and choose the ViewIt@LU link . You can also search Citation Linker to see if a particular article is available. If you don't find it, you can submit a request for interlibrary loan (ILL) of a copy of the article: ILL takes about 3-10 days, so you may have a short wait. See the library's Interlibrary Loan page for more information.

Don't forget that the library still receives a significant number of publications in paper; these are housed on Level A (between the first and second floors of the library). You will want to search the library catalog for the title of the journal or book (not the title of the article or chapter) to see if the library owns the volume you need.
