Requesting Articles & Books

Getting Items at UT Libraries

FindText Icon To locate a copy of an article, look for the Find Text button located near the record of the article in the databases. Click on it to bring up a box that lists full-text and paper copy holdings.

Use our Step-by-Step Guide to "Get It" Library Services:

  • If we have a copy of a journal in print, and it's not checked out, and you need a single article from it (or you need a single chapter from a book on the shelf), you may request a PDF using the UT Libraries' Scan on Demand Service.
  • Graduate students and Faculty may request delivery of books to their departmental office using Library Express. Undergraduate students may request an available book be held at the library's check-out desk for them.

Borrowing from Other Libraries

If the Libraries do not subscribe to or have access to a journal (or book) that you need, request it from another library using UT Libraries' Interlibrary Loan Services.
