If you are searching the PubMed database using this link, which includes a code specific to the CU Libraries, you will see a blue "Get Article" button in every article record you locate in PubMed. Clicking the "Get Article" button will check the library catalog to see if the full text of the article is available through one of the library's databases.
If the full article is not available through a database, a link to Request from Interlibrary Loan will display (see example below).
Clicking this link will prompt you to log in to your ILLiad account (our interlibrary loan management system). If it's your first time using ILLiad, you'll be prompted to create an account. Otherwise, a form will appear with the article information automatically filled in. Simply click the "Submit Request" button and library staff will request the article for you from a different library. You will receive an email once the article arrives (typically a few days to a week after requested), and it will be available for you to view and download from your ILLiad account.
