InterLibrary Loan: We Do the Walking

Double-check with a librarian to verify that we don't have what you're seeking. If our library does not have the article you want, St. Mary's University students, faculty and staff may order it through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Be sure to allow up to two weeks to receive the ordered items.

Search WorldCat: You Do the Walking

If you can't find the specific article you need, check with a librarian to verify that we don't have what you're seeking. After you've checked our A to Z List (Locating Journals), check WorldCat to see if a local library has the journal and issue you need. Be sure to check the library's web site for their hours.
