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.

If you are using the public version of PubMed, you may set your My NCBI preferences to connect to full text of articles at the library using the "Outside Tool." Video instructions are found here.

If you're still having trouble, you can also check by searching for the article title in the library catalog, OneSearch. If the full text of the article is not available through any of our databases, you can request it via interlibrary loan.

Click on the hyperlinked article title.

Next, click on Request from Tipasa inside the Get It box.

Clicking this link will prompt you to log in to your Tipasa account (our interlibrary loan management system). If it's your first time using Tipasa, 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 Tipasa account.

If you encounter problems, please contact a librarian using one of the modes listed here.
