Locate Axe Full Text and
Print Journals:

The Axe Library Document Delivery Service provides copies of journal articles owned by the Library in print or microfilm, uploading them directly into your ILLiad account.

Simply put, if you want it, and we have it here, we will scan the article and upload it to your ILLiad account. If we do not have it, we will find another library that does, and send it out to them on Interlibrary Loan.

This does not, however, include articles that are available in full text through one of our online databases. You already have direct access to those articles online.

This is a free service to Axe Library patrons. You must have an ILLiad account set up, with a valid GUS account. Community Patrons may set up a GUS account by contacting the Interlibrary Loan department.

"New Copy/Delivery Service for Journal Articles Owned at Axe"

In recent years online journals have made finding journal articles convenient and easy. Axe Library now has subscriptions to over 15,000 online journals, magazines, and newspapers.

However, there are always times when the very article needed is on microfilm or in the bound volume stacks in the Library basement. Starting this semester, the Library is offering a new service, Document Delivery, to copy and deliver those articles from journal titles owned by Axe that are not online.

The Document Delivery service is handled through the new ILLiad system. When a request is submitted via ILLiad, the interlibrary loan staff first checks the local holdings. If the article is available in the microfilm or bound volume titles, the article is scanned and uploaded to the person's ILLiad account. If the article needs to be requested through interlibrary loan, the request is sent through to libraries that own the title.

Currently, the interlibrary loan staff is aiming for a turnaround time of two working days.

Here's how it works: when using a database and finding the article you want is not full text online, look for the "Article Linker" link or icon. The Article Linker page will have a link to ILLiad. The article will copy into the request form. All ILLiad users need to register. If you do not have an ILLiad account you can create one with your GUS ID and GUS PIN and completed an information form to supply your address, phone number, and email. If you find an article in a bibliography or reference list, ILLiad has a photocopy form that can be used to copy/paste or enter the needed data for the request.

For further information see the Document Delivery FAQ or email Richard Samford.
