Graduate, Online, and Distance Research

Research information and resources for VCSU graduate, online, and distance students.

Articles that aren't available in the library's database subscriptions can usually be obtained through an interlibrary loan (ILL) request. This page describes how to request articles found in an Articles+ or Google Scholar search.

Find and Request Additional Articles with Articles+

To find additional articles beyond those included in the library's subscriptions, conduct an Articles+ search. Then, click the box next to Expand My Results.

Click Expand My Results, on the left side of the screen, to see additional results.


This will expand the search to include articles to which the library doesn't have full-text access. However, you can still request these articles via interlibrary loan. Just click the Services link under the article, then choose the link to request the article via VCSU interlibrary loan. Find ILL login instructions in the box below.
