Using Library Resources: Key Library Accounts and Related Tutorials and Guides
Search the holdings of 84+ academic libraries in Illinois. Request and have books sent here for free. Many libraries are local, so you may also get the book directly from the library.
Interlibrary Loan is for the requesting articles that the DePaul Library does not have access to. Additionally, this service is also the platform for requesting books from libraries beyond the I-Share institutions. Interlibrary Loan requests take 2 weeks or more to arrive, and typically you can keep them for only 4 weeks.
*Please note that loaning libraries have the right to recall their books from you prior to the due date.
In Google Scholar, DePaul users can select Settings in the top right corner and click on Library links in the left-hand column. Search for DePaul, select the four options that appear and scroll down to save your settings. (You need to do this only once for each browser you use.) Now your Google Scholar search results will show Find full-text@DePaul -- click the link to see which DePaul databases include the article you need. (If there's no Find full-text link, use the DePaul Library Holdings link under the citation instead). If you do not see the word ARTICLE in all caps, current students, faculty and staff may request the article using the Interlibrary Loan service.
