How to Order an Journal Article or Book:
This service allows you to order an article or book not held in the ETSU libraries, or to pay the library to scan copies of print articles held in the Medical Library. There are three common ways to order – it is up to you which you prefer to use.
- Sending a direct email request to the interlibrary loan department via Quillenill@etsu.edu – for journal articles, books, or other materials
- Using the online order form to submit a request – for journal articles, books, or other materials
- Order directly through PubMed – for journal articles only
