Chicana & Chicano Studies (CHIC) -- Health Focus: ILLiad (Request resources we do not own)

Research resources for the study of health issues in the Chicano Community

Using ILLIAD (InterLibrary Loan) to get access to items we don't own

ILLiad is a free interlibrary loan service available to current Cal State Fullerton students, faculty, and staff.  Before requesting an books, articles and other items through ILLiad, it is important to know that the Pollak Library pays a cost of approximately $22.00 to $30.00 to process each request.  We, therefore, encourage responsible use of the ILLiad interlibrary loan system.

If the book you want has been checked out, you must use the recall button in the Pollak Library Catalog, as we do not interlibrary loan books that we own.  You also may try finding a similar item by searching the related Library of Congress subject headings for your particular title or by using the "More Like This" feature available through the Pollak Library catalog.  (Please note that interlibrary loan requests for books the library owns will not be processed. You may order items that have been officially declared missing or lost.)

As you conduct your research for journal articles, try to locate similar items if the full text of your particular article is not available in print or online.

If after taking the above steps you determine that interlibrary loan is the only way to obtain the specific resources you need, we welcome you to submit your request through ILLiad.
