Requesting scanned articles and book sections
To see the full screen version, click on the Fullscreen option in the lower right corner.

Click on any image to zoom in.
TIU students may request scans of items from other libraries. For example, you may request an article from a print journal, an essay from a book, or an entry from a reference book.

When searching in a database, first look for links that say "full-text," which means the full article is available online.
If there is no full-text available, click on
the link that says "Find It."

This will search the library catalog to
see if the journal is available in print
or online in another database.

Check to see if the journal is available online.
"Electronic Journal" means it should be available online in a database. Click the title to see more info.
Often there are gaps in coverage, so check to see if the year you need is available.
If it covers the date you want, click on the "Full text available" link to access the article.
If it says "Deerfield Periodical Collection" it is available in print in the library.
"Microfilm collection" means it is on film which requires a microfilm reader to view.

If the journal is not available at Rolfing Library, you may request it, and the library will get a scan from another library.
To request, go back to the article database and click on the link that says "Request through ILLiad."
The first time you use ILLiad, you will need to create an account.
Click the link at the bottom for first time users.
Fill out all your information. You can choose any username and password you want.
The information about the article will automatically be entered into the form.
You can decide whether to change options such as the not-needed after date or language preferences.
You can also add notes with any special information.
After you submit your request, go to "Outstanding requests" to see the status of your request.
When your article arrives, you will receive an email.
You will then go to "Electronically received articles" in ILLiad to view your article. You must download it within 30 days.
Those were instructions for how to request an article through a database. If you found a citation elsewhere (such as a footnote or professor recommendation),
you can fill out a form in ILLiad.
From the library homepage, go to
"My ILLiad Account" or "Interlibrary Loan."
Click on the link for "Article" under "New Request."
Fill out the information about the article or book section. Include as many details as possible.
If you need help, contact the reference desk at (847) 317-4001 or libref@tiu.edu
Or contact the Interlibrary Loan Office at (847) 317-4020 or ill@tiu.edu
To cancel a request, click on the number.
If you accidentally delete the article before 30 days are up, you may undelete it. (The word "undelete" is a link.)
Then find the link to cancel.
Be sure to specify where you found the citation.
Library staff may try to recreate your search to track down the item. Include as much information as possible.
You may also request a book chapter or entry from a reference book by clicking "Book Chapter/Essay."
