Identifying Articles Available in Print

When you look up a book or article on our homepage search box, sometimes it will only be available in print for library use:


In these cases, we can scan and send a chapter from a book or article from a bound periodical.  Note: For Spring 2020, please place an interlibrary loan request for books chapters or articles the library has available in print, as the library building is closed due to the COVID-19 situation.  We will check to see if an electronic copy is available.
