How to Request Articles

Access articles directly, or if not available, request a copy and receive an email notification when it’s ready. Some restrictions may apply.

1. First, check to see if the article is available online.

2. If you were not able to access the article online, then request a copy (UW-Madison faculty, staff and students only).

  • We’ll supply you with a pdf version of a UW-Madison print article, or get a pdf copy from another library.
  • To place your request, use the Request a Copy button in the library database record. If you aren’t able to locate what you need in a library database, submit an Interlibrary Loan request using a blank form.
  • Typical delivery is 1-3 days
