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 firstname.lastname@example.org for help locating full text sources on your research topic.
This is a great question!
No, Concordia does not expect students to purchase articles that we don't own. While our database subscriptions don't provide full text to all journals or issues of journals, we are able to get copies for current students, faculty, and staff through interlibrary loan. You can submit a request form, and the library staff will request a copy of the article from a library that does have access. It will be emailed to you as a PDF.
More information and request options can be found on the main library website at: https://www.cu-portland.edu/academics/libraries/guide-services/interlibrary-loan-service.
