Tips for Searching

As you're looking for journal articles in the databases, look at the bibliographies at the end of articles that relate to your topic. Searching the sources of the author is a great way to find additional sources for your own work.

If you find a citation for an article in a bibliography, you can search for that article by first looking for the journal title in Journal Finder. Then look for the year, volume and issue, and article title.

Can't find the journal title, or the year you need? Submit an article request through Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan

Can't find the specific book  or article you need?

Order it through our Interlibrary Loan service (ILL). Faculty, staff, and currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students can request materials not owned by Speed Library.

Books are usually loaned free of charge, but loan fees can range from postage costs to $25, depending on the policies of the lending library. Many libraries in the state and region have ILL reciprocal agreements concerning charges and no fees or photocopy charges are levied. Speed Library does not charge for this service to its borrowers.
