Before placing a request with the IDS for a journal article, please be sure that you have done the following:
- First, see our e-journals page to search for the journal that your article is from.
- Next, search for the journal in our online catalog. Just search local holdings. If you find the journal here, double-check the holding information at the bottom of the record to discover whether the library has the journal you need as a hard-copy.
- Finally, if you don’t find that NIU owns the journal electronically or as a hard-copy, submit an NIUILLiad request for the article (note: SFX also links to this form).
Problems? Questions? Call the IDS office at 815-753-9842 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that all ILL notifications are sent to official NIU email accounts only.
