For your purposes overseas, Interlibrary Loan can help you get access to articles to which ZL does not subscribe. Follow the steps for setting up an account and submitting a request for an article below.
Articles will be delivered electronically to your ILLiad account. You'll receive an email when they arrive and are waiting for download.
1. Sign Up for an ILLiad Account
Sign up for an ILLiad account here.
This link can also be found on the Zondervan Library home page under Interlibrary Loan.
2. Search for the Specific Article in Database
Example using America: History & Life:
Journal Title: Journal of Military History. Article Title: Adversary and Ally: The Role of Weather in the Life and Career of George Washington. Author: Cameron Boutin. Date: July 2017. Volume 81, Issue 3, Pages 693-718.
3. Check to See if it is in Another Zondervan Library Database
Cut and paste the complete journal title into Journal Finder located on the main Zondervan Library page.
The Journal Finder will verify that we do or do not own the title in full text in another ZL database or in print. This is an essential step that saves time.
If Zondervan Library owns or has access to the item in full-text form, it will not be delivered to you through your ILLiad account. The Interlibrary Loan department may inform you by email that we have access to it, as a courtesy to you, but this is not guaranteed.
4. Submit Request
If Zondervan Library does not have the article, please submit an ILLiad Request. Use the easy-to-find link to interlibrary loan below, which you will find in most EBSCOhost databases: Borrow this item from another library (Interlibrary Loan)
Clicking the link will import most of the necessary information into an ILLiad form. Verify all fields are completed (including Journal Title and page numbers) and then submit the request.
You do not need to pay for any article directly from a publisher. Zondervan is usually able to obtain the item from a college or university for free. In some cases we can purchase on-demand articles as you need them. Let us find it for you!
