Q. How do I get articles from journals that the library doesn't have?

Answer

If the Library does not provide a print journal that you need you should check the databases to see if we subscribe to the journal electronically. You can access the databases of the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD) if you are in the Priddy Library because we are a branch of the UMD Library system. Here is how:

  1. Start at any Library computer
  2. Go to  the Priddy Library homepage.
  3. Click the "Articles" tab
  4. Click the Login button
  5. Select the "Journals" tab
  6. Type the name of the journal. Follow any further linking instructions in the results.

If you don't see it in the results, that means we do not have electronic access to that journal either. But the journal may be accessible online through your home institution's databases. So from any computer, anywhere in the world, follow these directions:

  1. Go to the Priddy Library homepage
  2. Click "Articles" tab
  3. Select your University from the drop-down menu
  4. Click the Login button
  5. Login using your University ID barcode number
  6. Select the "Journals" tab
  7. Type the name of the journal. Follow any further linking instructions in the results.

If your University also does not provide electronic access to the journal, you may still be able to get articles from it through the InterLibrary Loan/Document Delivery services. Please read more about each of these services on the Priddy Library website to decide which one is most likely to get you what you need.
