Please help! My instructor says that I need peer-reviewed or scholarly articles for my assignment. When I searched the library databases, I found a few with full-text (those that I could access immediately). Many sources looked promising, but I was not able to view them. How can I get access to these articles quickly, even if I’m studying online or at an extended campus?

Dear Appreciative Article Reader,
Never fear! The Library will come to your rescue! With a few simple steps, you can request the article, and the library can request it from another school on your behalf. In 2-3 business days, you will receive an electronic copy of the article that will be available to you for two weeks.
When you see an article that does not have full-text available, simply click the Article Linker Icon. This will check all of our databases in one search so that you don’t have to check them individually.
If it isn’t available in any of our databases, you will see the blue “Request it Here” button.
Click Request it Here, and you will be redirected to a system called ILLIAD, where you can keep track of your requests and read the articles that you’ve received. Pow! Bang! It’s that simple!
