Do you have this journal?

Submitted by Tim Siftar on March 17, 2010 - 12:28PM

[This is part of an occasional series where I post my responses to typical questions I receive in the hopes that it may be useful to others.] QUESTION: Tim, Hello! I am trying to find if Drexel subscribes to Human Development journal. Specifically, I am looking for a 1991 issue, volume 34, issue 1. I was not able to find it but perhaps I missed something. Can you please help me or at least confirm that Drexel does not have it? Thanks, RESPONSE: Good to hear from you. Yes we have that journal, as a search in the catalog by Journal Title turns up. But here's the thing. You're asking for an older article that we don't have electronically. BUT - not to worry. We *do* have it in hard copy. And in case you can't get to campus immediately to copy it yourself, you have some options. If you can wait 24 hours, our Document Delivery Staff will fulfill your request if you submit all the details through our ILLiad inter-library loan system. You will receive an email when the electronic PDF copy has been loaded to your personal ILLiad account. Just login and pick it up! Best, Tim Cool extra detail - In fact, if you found the citation in on of our Drexel databases, there is a way of using the SFX button's 'Additional Services' option so that you don't even have to fill in the ILL form. From the SFX button for your citation just click Additional Services/Inter-library Loan and then login to your ILLiad account and all the information for your citation will auto-populate into the ILL request form. Cool, huh?
