Using Interlibrary Loan

Maybe you've found an article cited in a literature review that's exactly what you've been looking for; or you found an article on Google Scholar that the Relay library doesn't have access to; or you need a chapter of a book that the Relay library doesn't have an ebook copy of. Not to worry! Email us at or fill out this form - we can help you to track down a copy of the article or chapter that you're looking for, or we can submit a request for the article through Interlibrary Loan.

  • Keep in mind that Interlibrary Loan typically takes between 1-5 business days to provide copies of an article (so it might not be your best option if you're operating under an approaching deadline). If you need something more quickly, feel free to email us and we'll be happy to help you find similar articles within 24 hours!
  • When submitting an ILL request, the more information you can provide, the better! If possible, please include the article/book title; the author(s); the journal title; the volume/issue; publication date; page numbers; and/or a link or DOI.
