Electronic Journal Databases
If you need a item that isn't owned by the MacMurray College Library or another I-Share Library, you can request it through interlibrary loan. Once you submit a request, the Library will attempt to borrow the item from other libraries that own it.
Requests don't need to be for school, we are more than happy to try and get copies of books for leisure reading or any DVD movies you want to see.
This service is free to the MacMurray community, however some lending libraries may charge. We try and avoid dealing with libraries that charge, but if they are the only option, we will check with you before agreeing to any fees.
Journal articles are usually sent via e-mail attachment, so most requests are filled within a matter of days. Books, DVDs, and other physical items take varying amounts of time to come in. Items shipped from an Illinois library generally arrive within a week, while items from out-of-state libraries come through the mail, so something from Texas will generally take longer than something from Missouri.
- Did you know that you can place interlibrary loan requests for journal articles in the EBSCOhost databases that aren't available in full-text? If there isn't a link to a full-text copy of the article you want to read, click on the "Get a Copy of this Article" link, fill out the form, and click "Submit." Most articles will arrive within a couple of days.
