Commercial Document Delivery Services

If an article is not available through the library, and you can't get it by other means such as:

  • borrowing from another SUNY or NY state community college library
  • using interlibrary loan if you are a grad student or faculty member
  • going to your local public library for interlibrary loan, etc.)

then you may want to try a commercial document delivery service. 

This is a good option only if you're sure that you really need this article in particular, because it costs money. The price includes the royalties that go to the copyright owner plus a service charge.

Different services have different articles available as well as different charges and delivery times. Most services deliver your article electronically, by emailing you a link to the PDF file, or emailing you the document as an attachment.
