Retrieving Sources during COVID19

If you need:

  • A book or journal article that Drew may have electronically, check ScholarSearch or the Library Catalog
  • Book chapter(s), or articles from  journals that Drew only has in print format, use Request for Material Scan. Scans of over 150 pages will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Within 2-3 business days you will be notified by email whether we can fill a given request of this length.  If the Library Catalog does not list chapters or essays, check WorldCat for that information.
  • To check out a book from the Library collection, if you are able to come to campus to pick it up, use the Drew Loan pickup request form.
  • A journal article or essay in a book that Drew does not own, use Interlibrary Loan.
  • A book that Drew does not own, use Library Resources Request Form. We will determine whether purchasing an ebook, digitizing a print copy, or purchasing a print copy is the best option.  Within 2-3 business days you will be notified by email advising how we will fill your request.
  • If you need help with these resources, your library colleagues are here to help — start with the Ask a Librarian page.
