Though many articles are now available online, you may find the University of Manitoba Libraries does not have access to something you want to read. If this is the case, you can create a document delivery request. When you make a document delivery request, UM Libraries will borrow the item on your behalf from another institution's library, either in Canada or internationally. If you are requesting an article, you will be sent an electronic copy to your email.
- Once you have your search results, you may see items that the UM Libraries does not have access to. When you see "No full-text. Click here to request," you can click the link to be brought to a request page.
- Ensure you are signed in to your account to be able to submit a request.
- You will be brought to a new tab and can request your article by clicking Request from another library.
- The article's citation information should be filled in automatically, along with your contact information. Ensure everything is correct and click Submit.
- You will be notified via email when a copy of the article has been located and is available for you to read.
Note that you can also submit document delivery requests for books that the UM Libraries does not have. Another option is submitting a purchase request for the item, to recommend UM Libraries to purchase the item.
As an aside, know that in addition to UM Libraries borrowing materials from other libraries, we lend our collection to members of other libraries as well!
