What is Get It Now?

It is another way for faculty and graduate students to obtain some articles that are not available online if the publisher participates in Get It Now.

All students and faculty can use InterLibrary Loan to request articles not available online. These articles typically arrive in a few days and are free.

Faculty and Graduate students may have an additional option if they absolutely need the article earlier because Get It Now delivers certain articles within a few hours. The library must pay a $30 fee per article for this service, so please only use this as needed.

Who can use Get It Now?

The Get It Now service is available ONLY to faculty and graduate students
