Please use the Online Article Request Form (right) to request articles. You may also download the paper form, fill it out completely, and submit the form with the appropriate fee to the Circulation Desk.
A separate form is required for each request.
If you fill out the Paper Form, you may print out the citation for the document and staple it to the request form. This saves time and helps the Library process your request faster.
A complete citation is required. If you have problems finding a full citation, contact the Reference & Research Services Desk. Be sure to legibly include your full contact information.
Regular Request (usually 3-10 business days): Free*
Rush delivery (usually 1-3 business days): $10.00 per request
*Please note: we are doing a trial of the regular document delivery service for free during the Fall 2014 semester. We may have to go back to charging the fee again in the Spring 2015.
Publisher Direct Option
If you would like the ILL Department to purchase a copy of your journal article directly from a publisher, you may do so for an addtional fee. This option would be ideal for patrons needing the clearest available pictures in his/her articles such as pictures of molecules, cells, etc.
Cost: $5 (usually 3-10 business days)
Please note: Fees can be higher if an article costs more than the $25 that the library subsidizes for publisher direct documents. The library cannot guarantee that we will be able to get a publisher’s copy. If either of these circumstances occurs, we would contact you to decide how to proceed.
Non-Stevens Dissertation Request
Dissertations written by students at other universities may only be purchased through the Document Delivery Services.
$12 for each dissertation (TAT from 3 days up to 2 weeks depending on if the dissertaion is avialable for instant download or if the company has to ship the document to us)
It will cost an extra $3 if you need it mailed to you off campus. Please allow 10 business days for delivery of your request.
