Document Delivery

Many of our articles are available online in a full-text or pdf format. If you request an article from an item we own only in print, we will scan the article and send it to you.

Articles should be requested through MyILL. Be sure to include mention in the "notes" field that you are a distance ed student.


Request articles not available in full-text or pdf format through MyILL.

In order to place a request you must have a  MyILL account. Create your MyILL account here.



Search Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a popular way to search for scholarly articles, reports, books and more.  You can connect Google Scholar to IIT's libraries from the Library links section of Scholar Settings. This way, when you find an article you'd like to read you will be able to see if we have the article or be directed to MyILL to request it.
