Ways to submit a request...

1.   Complete a blank request form (login with your SALUS username and click Create Request from the left-hand panel). ** A check of SALUS before submitting a request may show you may already have online full-text access

2.   Look for the "Item not available...Request it!" text to the right of each record displayed when accessing any OVID Database to be taken to the Interlibrary Loan account login screen.    Once you have accessed your account with your SALUS user name you are able to view a pre-populated request form which is ready to be submitted by clicking the blue “Request” button once you have checked the details are correct and you have selected a pickup location if requesting a book or added any special instructions

3.   Look for the green “Unavailable through SALUS …. Request it!"  Button when searching for journal articles.  Tip:  You may need to click on the article title to go to a more detailed record for the article to see the green ‘request'  it button

Is there any charge for the Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery Service?

Will I need a username and password to use the service?

What if I have more than one SALUS account, and therefore more than one username?

Can I submit a request from home?

Will articles be emailed to me?

Australia Post delivery times for print books, and in the case of print articles that are not able to be delivered electronically due to contractual arrangements, between publishers and the supplying organisations
Availability of articles delivered electronically from Australian versus Overseas or Commercial suppliers
Weekends/Public Holidays
Potential supplying organisations being in different Australian time zones
