How do I structure a SuperSearch for articles the library does not own so I can request the articles from InterLibrary Loan?

The following are suggested steps to use SuperSearch to find articles we don't own, so that you may request them through Interlibrary load (ILL).

1. Access SuperSearch from our library website at

2. Use keywords or other search options (author, title, etc.) to start your search.

3. To locate items for ILL, you need to uncheck “Available in Library Collection” by clicking on the box next to this option on the left side of the search result page. Next, narrow your results to articles. On the left side of the results page, you will see a menu labeled "Result Type". Check the box next to "Academic Journals" to limit your results to only articles.

5. Look for a record without a full text link on the list and click the record title.

6. To request the item through interlibrary loan, click on “Submit InterLibrary Loan Request”

7. The ILLiad page will open. Login to ILLiad with your NetID and Password to submit your ILL request.  The article request form should auto-populate with the article's citation information. NOTE: If this is your first time using the system, you will need to enter your personal information before you can make a request.
