When you need to read an article, working paper, or book but you can't find it in the Libe's collections, you have more options than pulling out your wallet. The Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service makes it possible for the library to borrow materials from other libraries for you to use.
Look for links to ILL or Illiad (which is the name of our ILL software) from article databases, which will lead you to a request form. You can also go directly to ILL from the library web site (home page > login/your accounts > InterLibrary Loan), where you can also check the status of your requests. Articles take a few days and books around a week. You'll get an email when your item is ready.
This research guide is meant to direct you to the resources in Gould Library's collection most relevant to your assignments in this class, and to help direct you to the literature of the anthropology of gender.
If you would like to meet with me in my office, Libe 420, to discuss your research topic and the search process, take a look at my schedule to find times we both have available then let me know when you would like to meet. I can be reached by email, chat, phone, or look for me at the Research/IT Desk.
For quick questions, try the Research/IT Desk first for immediate help.
