Please note: As of April 25th, 2020, you will not be able to request materials through interlibrary loan at the Concordia University - Portland libraries. Please contact your local public library about requesting materials or email us at for help locating full text sources on your research topic.

Get Article link

When the Get Article button appears in a database, that means the full text of the article isn't available in that particular database. When you click the Get Article button, the system searches for the full text of the article in our other databases. If it is available in another database, you'll see links to the database(s) where the article is available. Click the link to access the article.

If the article isn't available in another database, you'll see a link in the Access Online box that says, "Request from Tipasa / Interlibrary Loan" (see screenshot below).

This link directs you to Tipasa, our interlibrary loan management system. Once logged in (first-time users will be prompted to register), the request form will appear, pre-filled with the article details. Submit the form, and we'll do our best to get a copy of the article from another library. When the article is received, you will be notified by email.
