UNCW Interlibrary Loan & Document Services Electronic Delivery Information

Interlibrary Loan delivers articles directly to your Interlibrary Loan account in PDF format.

How do I know if my computer can receive electronic articles?

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader installed and configured to work with your Web browser in order to view, download, and print these articles. If you already have Adobe Reader installed, you need do nothing more. If your computer tells you the file type is unknown and asks if you want to save the file to disk, then you need to install the Adobe Acrobat Reader software.

How do I get Adobe Acrobat Reader?

Adobe Acrobat Reader is available without charge from Adobe Systems, Inc. Click the "Get Adobe Reader" button to go directly to the download page.

How do I get my articles when they arrive?

  1. Logon to UNCW Interlibrary Loan
  2. From the main menu, click the "Electronically Received Articles" link under the View Requests options.
  3. A list will be displayed containing all of the items that you have waiting to be viewed or downloaded.
