Is the article FULL-TEXT?



Print or e-mail the article

Note the citation information of the article & check the holdings on the Library’s Web site. Does the Library have the article?

Go to the shelves & locate the correct issue. (If it is in microfiche form, find it in the microfiche cabinets.)

NO, but I can wait a week or so.

NO, and I need it NOW!


Ask about Document Delivery

1. Check the holdings of other local libraries.

2. Call other local libraries.


Does one of them have the issue you need?

Try one of these options:

b. Hope for foul weather to cancel classes;

Go get it!
