Finding Full Text: Document Delivery

OVERVIEW

You can utilize the Bird Library's document delivery services to request:

  • Items that the library does not own (Interlibrary Loan)
  • Materials that the library does own which you would like our staff to copy or scan for you (Copy/Scan Service)

Both of these activities are managed with a program called ILLiad; the process for submitting these types of requests is summarized below.

INTERLIBRARY LOAN (ILL)

Things to keep in mind...

  • If the Bird Library does not have print or electronic access to the content you need, you can request a copy of the item through ILL
  • While it is a good idea to plan on 7-10 business days for delivery of your article or book chapters, most of the time you'll receive your item in 1-3 business days; ILL requests for books will take longer 
  • ILL is a free service for OUHSC faculty, students, and staff
