Articles from volumes in remote storage (off-site in a building a few miles away) will be scanned and emailed to all users, usually within a few hours at no charge.

Determine if the Article is Available at Clemson and What to Do if it's Not

Once you've verified that the article is not available at Clemson, check for a rogue copy online.

Sometimes you can find copies of articles that have been digitized by article authors, publishers, or in another form (such as a conference proceeding before publication in a journal) in Google Scholar.

Or use Ingenta to download a copy

Use Ingenta to access full-text online articles that the Clemson Libraries do not own. Ingenta has limited coverage and a price cap, but if your article is in there, you can download it in minutes.

Interlibrary Loan is a great option!

If the article can’t be located, you can request that our Resource Sharing office get a FREE copy for you from a library that owns that journal. You must first create a profile.
