Steps for ordering an article through interlibrary loan.
1. Be sure that you have an ILLIAD account. You need to sign up for an ILLIAD account using the link listed above. This link can also be found on the Zondervan Library home page under Interlibrary Loan.
2. Using the desired database, perform a search. Example using PubMed:
Journal Title: Clin Sports Med. 2012 Apr;31(2):203-15. doi: 10.1016/j.csm.2011.11.002. Article Title: Evaluation of the injured runner. Authors: Meininger AK1, Koh JL.
3. The full title is Clinics in Sports Medicine. You can usually copy the journal abbreviation in Google or use the doi to determine the exact title.
4. Cut and paste this title into Journal Finder located on the main Zondervan Library page. This verifies that we do not own the title in full text in another ZL database. This is an essential step that saves time. If Zondervan Library owns or has access to the item in full text form it will not be delivered to you through your ILLIAD account. The Interlibrary Loan department may inform you that we have access to it by email as a courtesy to you. But this is not guaranteed. You will ultimately have to redo a search.
5. You do NOT need or want to order any article directly from a publisher linking from the PubMed site. The access to articles this way is very costly. Zondervan is usually able to obtain the item from a local college or university for free or in some cases we have accounts for purchasing on- demand articles. Let us find it for you, in most cases at a more reasonable cost that what Science Direct, Elsevier or other publishers will charge.
6. You can then import the needed information into a blank ILLIAD form and submit the request.
7. OR For an easier way to automatically order an item in PubMed, you can choose MEDLINE (which is basically the same database as PubMed) and use the easy to find link to interlibrary loan Borrow this item from another library (Interlibrary Loan)
8. PubMed does not have an easy to use interlibrary loan link at this time.
