You Go and Get the Materials
Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
The public library of the city of Pittsburgh, with a main branch in Oakland, as well as many other branches. You can easily walk to the Oakland branch from Hunt Library in about 10 minutes or less. While you don't need a card to use a journal or magazine there, you can get a library card by going to CLP and showing proof of Allegheny County residence.
University of Pittsburgh
You can easily walk to the University of Pittsburgh's Hillman Library from Hunt Library in 10 minutes or less. Others may take longer to walk to. For online journals, you need to get a special pass to get on the computers. Ask at the reference/circulation desks. Hint: bring a flash drive!!
Other Local Libraries
You can also go and use journals at Duquesne, Chatham, and Carlow. For online journals, you may want to check to see if non-affiliated students can use online resources. For links see Other Catalogs
Database of libraries' holdings throughout the U. S. and even some European libraries. Use this to see if a local library has the journal you want, then you can either use the link to ILLiad, or search the catalog of that local library to see if the journal volume is availablw and go use it. Bring a flash drive in case you need to download an electronic verion of the article.
Options for Getting Journal Articles
In a database, if full text links for journal articles are not provided, click on the button to see retrieval options. This may not be available in all databases. If there is no button, or if you are not in a database, use the Journal Search list to see if it is available.
If we don't have the journal you need, you have the following options depending on your time frame and where you are willing to go to get the materials. If you have any questions or need help, don't hesitate to ask for assistance.
We Get It For You
ILLiad is our interlibary loan system. If you've never used it before you'll need to register for the service (a quick process). Once registered, you fill out a form for the book you want. Usually it takes 7-10 days to get the book. You'll get an email when the item is available for you to pick up. You can see the progress of your request on the ILLiad system.
