Journal articles OWNED BY the Marx Library will be copied and delivered to researchers for the fees listed below. Allow 24 hours (Monday - Friday) for delivery. Document Delivery requests are limited to 3 per day and citations should be complete and accurate.

Requests must be submitted via ILLiad.

First time users will need to create a patron account in ILLiad; see First Time User Registration. If you already have an ILLiad account, you will use this login to submit Document Delivery requests.

Select the appropriate form for an article or book chapter.

At the field, "Is this item available in the University Libraries collections?", click on Yes. Then fill out as much information as possible in each field.

Indicate that you are willing to pay the fees for copying materials available in the University Libraries' collections by choosing the Document Delivery Fee option in the Maximum Willing to Pay for Material field.

Charges will be posted to the library patron's account. Payments may be made at the Circulation Desk in person or by mail. Department or grant accounts may be set up via Voyager by the ILL Office for payment by BANNER Direct Pay. All payments are due by the end of the semester.

Journal articles at the Biomedical Library (Campus site, USAMC and Children's and Women's) should be requested from their Document Delivery service.

Material NOT OWNED by the USA Libraries should be requested through Interlibrary Loan, so check the SOUTHcat catalog and Our Journal & E-Book List first.
