Document Request

Please use the Online Article Request Form (right) to request articles. If you have problems with the online version, download the paper form, fill it out completely, and submit the form and the appropriate fee to the Circulation Desk (We don't accept Fax). A separate form is required for each request. If you fill out the Paper Form, 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. Be sure to legibly include your full contact information.

Departmental Account

If you are using a Departmental Account number to pay for your document requests, you must use the paper form. You must also have the head of the department's signature for the request to be processed.


$1 per every article you order ($10 for rush delivery of articles).

Publisher Direct Option

If you would like us to purchase a copy of your journal article directly from a publisher, you may do so for a fee. This option would be ideal for patrons needing the clearest available pictures in his/her articles such as pictures of molecules, cells, etc. There is a $5 fee for this option in addition to the regular $1 fee or $10 rush processing fee.

Please note: Fees can be higher if an article costs more than the$25 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.
