Interlibrary Loan - Requesting articles not owned by the Rod Library

How to request a research article using Interlibrary Loan

Suppose - while searching Google Scholar - you found the 2020 article:
    

Asaka, Megan. “Incendiary City: Fire and Race in Seattle’s Progressive Era.” Pacific Northwest Quarterly 111, no. 2/3

 

After checking Google Scholar, Google, and OneSearch you find you can't access an online copy of this article. (JSTOR contains past issues of Pacific Northwest Quarterly  - from 1936 to 2016.  However, the 2020 articles of Pacific Northwest Quarterly won't be available in JSTOR until the year 2028). 

 

So it's time to request this journal article via interlibrary loan.  Here's how:

 

    

Step 1 - find the "Find, Borrow, & Request" option on the UNI Rod Library website.

Step 5 - Click on "Journal Article" under "New Request"

Step 6 - Now you need to fill out the form.  While you're only required to fill out the name of the journal (Journal Title) and the title of the article (Article Title) - filling out additional information may help speed up the return time.  Click on "Submit Request" at the bottom of the page when you have filled out the form.
