Interlibrary Loan

You can use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to request copies of full text articles that are unavailable via the School of Medicine Library. We can quickly obtain copies of articles in both print and electronic formats.  

Journal article requests are free (with a limit of ten active requests at a time). 

Visit this page for a quick overview on how to request a journal article via Interlibrary Loan.

To request an item, visit the Interlibrary Loan page. Follow the instructions to set up an ILL Express! account, which you will use to request an item.
