How to Request a Journal Article

If you search for an article and find out that we don’t have a full-text version available online, you can request to have a scanned copy sent to you through Search It.

  • Click on the search result in Search It
  • Scroll down to “Get it from another library”
  • Make sure you’re signed into Search It with your WSU Network ID and password
  • After signing in, you should see a red button appear that says “Request Item"

'Get it from another library' box with option to request article


  • Accessing your article
    • You will get an email when your article is ready to view. It will have a link to download the article immediately. You will also be able to access it through your Search It account.

To see the request process in action, take a look at this video about requesting full-text articles through Search It:
