Document Delivery Service
Watzek staff will scan journal articles and book chapters available in Watzek's print or microform collections for Lewis & Clark faculty, graduate students and undergraduates stugying abroad.
Delivery and Timeframe
Materials will usually be scanned and posted within three business days of a request. If an article is not available locally in print or microform, it will be requested via Interlibrary Loan and should be available within seven business days.
Users will receive a notice via email when an item is posted to their Interlibrary Loan & Article Delivery account. Scanned materials will be available for 30 days.
Making a Request
Requests should only be submitted after checking for existing full-text access via L&C WorldCat and available databases. Requests can be made directly from most research databases using the button. This method will open a new window with details on accessing the journal. If the article is available in Watzek's print or microform collections and not already available online, a link to proceed with an interlibrary loan request will be available at the bottom of the window (we'll know it's for something from our collection). From that link, users will be prompted to confirm the article information and submit the request. Undergraduates studying abroad: Please note that you are on an Overseas/Off-Campus program when making requests.
The Article Delivery request form can also be completed manually, though the method above ensures that the most complete and accurate citation information will be provided to Watzek staff. If the form is filled out manually, please provide citations without abbreviations.
Limits on Requests
In order to comply with the Fair Use provisions of U.S. copyright law, users should not request more than one article from a single journal issue or one chapter from an individual book. Requests may be rejected if, in our judgement, fulfillment of the request would involve a violation of copyright law (Title 17, United States Code).
