Article in a journal

Follow these instructions to request a copy of an article in a paper journal only held at a library branch you normally don't use. 

  1. Sign into the Catalogue
  2. Search for and find the Catalogue record for the journal title you seek
  3. Check the journal holdings information in the catalogue, which lists the journal volumes owned by the SFU Library. Be sure that the specific volume and date that you need is available.
  4. In the "Get It" area of the journal's Catalogue record, select "Interlibrary Loans" to order the article you would like to receive.

The article will be sent to you electronically using the Library's secure Post-to-Web service, usually within 2 days.

You can also request Microlog fiche from Bennett Library. From the catalogue, place a request as you would for an article. Title of the publication and fiche number are all that's needed.
