Q. What is ArticleReach?
Answered By: Sharon Nangle Last Updated: Jan 20, 2020 Views: 7
If you have searched for a journal article, and it's not available you'll see a screen which tells you "No results were found" and then gives you a link to request through ArticleReach:
Use the "Request this now through University Library ArticleReach" link to try to get the article from another Library.
If you haven't already logged in, you'll be taken to the University of St Andrews Single Sign on where you enter your username and password.
You're then taken to a "Request Verfication" page:
Enter your name, and the barcode number which you'll find on the back of your staff or student ID card, then click "Submit"
A form will display, with fields pre-filled:
- Check the details are correct.
- If you are using ArticleReach because an issue of a journal is missing from the shelf, or an article is embargoed (not yet available for download) on a journal site such as JSTOR, make sure you tick the box "item not on shelf/ejournal not available".
- Then click "Submit"
Your request will go into the ArticleReach system and if available will be supplied by one of the partner Libraries. If it's not available your request will be transferred to the Inter-Library Loans service.
More information about ArticleReach can be found on the Inter-Library Loans page.
ArticleReach is available for all current staff and students at the University of St Andrews.
