Never Pay for an Article with Interlibrary Loan!

If we don’t have the full-text you can request it for free via Interlibrary Loan.  Here’s how:

  1. Copy the article title and paste it into the search box on the library homepage located here: https://www.lewisu.edu/academics/library/index.htm The search box is below the picture of the students.
  2. Open the article and on the right-hand side of the page is a “Request” button. Please click this.
  3. A new page will open, and also on the right-hand side is a link that says: “Request via Interlibrary Loan.”
  4. A form will open and you will need to fill this out with your full name and email, and then the article will be delivered to you via your Lewis email in 3-5 days.

If the article doesn’t appear within the first few results, please check the box titled: “Add results beyond your library’s collection.” This will search beyond the library’s resources.  Your article should then appear and can be requested using the method above or accessed by other means.

Fines? Hakuna Matata

You may have gotten a notice about fines and fees incurred from physical or other items you may have used. Please do not worry about it. Once we reopen, we will have access to our systems and we will waive fines when items are returned.

It’s our problem-free philosophy.
