Magazine and Journal Article Requests

Now that our new RINC version can accept magazine and journal article requests, it’s a good time to review some tips in verifying.  Please feel free to add your own suggestions to these:

  1. Always begin with our own resources.  Check the  A to Z list that’s found on our Databases and Research page and don’t forget to look at FirstSearch where there are several databases of magazines/journals.
  2. If it’s not available in any of the e-resources in #1, do a search for the journal/magazine title.  Many of the journals produced by societies and organizations have indexing available on the website and some even have full text articles available.
  3. If you cannot verify the magazine or journal title, please do a reference interview and don’t send the request along until you can verify the title of the magazine/journal.  ILL cannot proceed unless they have that verification.
