- Author name(s)
- Article title
- Journal name, year, volume & issue
- Other publication details as necessary
- DOI (Digital Object Identifier) if available - What is a DOI?
- Where you found the reference (database record, website, article bibliography, etc.) so that we can verify it
In many cases, requests can be fulfilled within one or two business days.
Most ILLs can be obtained at no cost; if there is a charge to get an item, the Librarian will advise prior to processing the request.
