Updates to InterLibrary Loan

As you start to get into your research projects and need articles from other libraries, you may notice that the InterLibrary Loan website has changed. The Rebecca Crown Library has switched over to a new Interlibrary Loan service. You can still request books, articles, movies and other materials from other libraries. All that has changed is the landing page.

You begin your InterLibrary Loan request as you would normally: through the InterLibrary Loan link on the Rebecca Crown Library homepage or through the “Request This Item” button in library databases when looking at an article that Rebecca Crown Library does not own.

The InterLibrary Loan link on the Rebecca Crown Library homepage is on the right-hand side of the page.

From the Rebecca Crown Library homepage, you log into your InterLibrary Loan account with your Dominican username and password. Once you have logged-in, you will land on your homepage, where you can open a new request form and manage your previous requests.

You can also link to your InterLibrary Loan account as you search one of our many databases. If you come across an article that Rebecca Crown Library does not own, you will see a “Find full text in other databases” link on the item page.

That link will take you either to another database where you can get the full article or to a page with a “Request this Item” link.

Once you have entered your username and password, the “Request this Item” link will take you to a fully populated request form in your InterLibrary Loan account. Verify that all of the information is correct in the form, and hit submit. You will get an email from ill@dom.edu with a link back to your Interlibrary Loan account when the article is available.

Library Workshop: How to Start Research

How to Start research Instagram

As we get deeper into the semester, professors are probably advising you to start thinking seriously about your big research projects. If you don’t know where to start, Crown Library’s How to Start Research workshop can help. We will lead you through three basic steps that will set you up for success: reading your assignment to identify all of the research requirements, understanding the difference between a thesis and a research question, and creating key words or search terms. Once you have these three skills, you’ll be able to start your research on the right foot. We will be hosting this workshop in Rebecca Crown Library, Room 111, at the following times:

Monday, September 18 at 6:00 pm;

Wednesday, September 20 at 2:30 pm;

Thursday, September 21 at 11:00 am.

You can register on the library’s Workshops page.

We hope to see you there!
