Getting Journal Articles

To obtain a copy of a journal article: If it is not available online, try the following step.

  1. Go to CLIO (Columbia Library Information Online) and search for the journal title.
  2. If the journal is found in our collection, check if the necessary issue is available as well as its location. When it is located offsite, you may request a copy of the article, by clicking the “offsite” button and filling in the "Electronic" form.
  3. If the journal is not held by Columbia, go to the  ILL (interlibrary loan) page. Select "Article" form to submit your request. In addition to required information, provide additional information such as volume number, ISSN, OCLC no., link to a NDL bibliographic record, etc. as much as possible.

Please note: Columbia does not participate in ILL for books with NDL. NDL only provides the Remote Photoduplication Service to Columbia users. Please read Information about Copyright page carefully to understand Japanese libraries' definition of "a part of a work" and limits on copying serial publications.
