Have you ever found a book or resource you wanted to use for a paper but Zondervan Library did not have it?

Interlibrary Loan is a service that allows you to request books and articles to borrow from other libraries.

There are a few differences between requesting books and articles, both processes are outlined below.

Ordering Articles ILLiad - 2023

1. Sign up for an ILLiad account

Sign up for an ILLiad account here.

2. Search for the specific article in library database

Example using Entrepreneurial Studies Source:

Article Title:  Dwyer, S., Richard, O. C., & Chadwick, K. (2003). Gender diversity in management and firm performance: the influence of growth orientation and organizational culture. Journal of Business Research, 56(12), 1009-19.

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 (e.g., Journal of Military History)

The Journal Finder will verify that we do or do not own the title in full text in another database or in print. This is an essential step that saves time in getting the article to you. 

4. Send request

If Zondervan Library does not have access to the article, please submit an ILLiad Request. Use the link in the citation in the database - Borrow this item from another library (Interlibrary Loan) - to request the item.

You can also manually fill out the fields for a New Request - Article form in ILLiad, if the handy link above is not available (such as with Google Scholar, PubMed, or an article you find on the web). After completing the form, simply the request.


You do not need to purchase an article directly from a publisher. The access to articles this way is very costly. Zondervan is usually able to obtain the item quickly from a another institution.
