Requesting Full-Text Articles FAQs

If the article I am looking for is not available in Full-Text, is there a way I can request it?

Yes. Interlibrary Loan Illiad/UBorrow is a free service in which materials are borrowed and lent between different libraries. This allows you to borrow items, such as books and articles, that are not owned by the UCF Libraries. Once you place the request in Illiad for an article,  you will receive an email notifying you to log-in to your Illiad account to view or download the PDF.

How long will it take my article to arrive?

Articles in journals and books owned by other libraries usually take 1 to 3 business days to arrive.
