ILL Article Requests

All article requests must be submitted through interlibrary loan (ILL). PASCAL Delivers can only accommodate physical items, such as books and DVDs.

If an article you need is not available through the Daniel Library's databases, we will do our best to get a copy from another library.

Request from Database

  • If you click on "Request through interlibrary loan," you will be prompted to log into your Tipasa account.
  • Once you have logged in, a request form with the relevant citation information will appear. 
  • Simply click "Submit," and your request will be sent to ILL staff for processing.

Submit Manual Request

To submit a request for an article or book chapter directly through your Tipasa account, please begin by logging in.

ILL Article Delivery

Articles requested through ILL are uploaded to your Tipasa account.

An email notification will be sent to your Citadel email address as soon as the article is available.

To access it, log into your Tipasa account, then click on "Electronically Received Articles," which is located in the "View" section.
