Union List of Serials

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)
If you cannot locate a particular magazine or the holding
library is not conveniently located near you, we can
order copies of articles for you through Interlibrary
Loan. To do this we will need a complete citation from
you with the title of the magazine or journal, the title
of the article, the date the article appeared and, if
available, the author of the article. Contact
the reference desk with your request.
We are able to locate and supply
most articles requested.
