Interlibrary Loan

You will sometimes find you need articles that are not available in full-text and that you cannot obtain at the WCSU Library.  If that happens, you will need to use Interlibrary Loan, using software called ILLiad.  The service is free (most of the time) and you will receive your article electronically in about 1-2 weeks, sometimes faster.  Article requests are usually initiated from within the database you are searching.  If you see a link that says "Click for availability options", followed by one that says "Request on Interlibrary Loan", you are using ILLiad!
