Interlibrary Loan from PubMed
When we don't have access to a particular article, you can order it directly through PubMed with your ILLiad login.
This is a brief demonstration on how to order Interlibrary Loan while searching PubMed. You must have previously registered in ILLiad, the Library's Interlibrary Loan system, but you do not have to be logged into ILLiad to begin. After you've done your search in PubMed, you may find a citation that you wish to view. Click on the hyperlinked title of that citation to see the abstract in the abstract display. If you'd like to know if you have access to the full text of this article, click on the Full Text Options icon. This will open another window that will tell you if this article is available. If there is no electronic access to the full text of this article, you may decide to request an interlibrary loan. Click on the ILL Request (all libraries) link. this will open another window, where you will first get a security information question, which you need to answer yes, and then a login window will appear, where you need to indicate that you are a member of the Medical Center campus, and then enter your ILLiad username, and your ILLiad password. Click on the Log On to ILLiad button. You will automatically be taken to the Photocopy Request template in ILLiad. This template form should already be populated with the correct order information. Review all the information and make sure that it is correct. Fill in the maximum cost of what you want to pay for this interlibrary loan, and any notes or instructions that need to be sent to the ILL department can be entered into the Notes field. Then hit the Submit Request button. You will then be given a transaction number, indicating that your request is on the way.
