Requesting Articles or Book Chapters

1. Verify MSU's holdings in our library catalog or use our A-Z listing of MSU's electronic journal titles. 

2. If the periodical you need is not available, you are ready to try interlibrary loan. Here's a few helpful hints:

  • Help us find exactly what you need by providing the ISSN. 
  • Note that some serials change titles one or more times during their publication history; make sure that the number you provide includes the years that correspond to your request.

To submit a request for a book chapter, follow the same procedure as you would to submit an article; choose "Book Chapter" from the left-hand side menu in ILLiad or, if you are a Distance User (>50 miles from Campus), use the copy option.

  • Each chapter requires a separate request.
  • In most cases, a library may provide a maximum of 2-3 chapters, or 50 pages. We reserve the right to cancel any requests that exceed a library's copying limit. If you need more than two chapters out of a volume, please submit a loan request and we will try to obtain the volume itself.
