Look up the item in the EWU Library Catalog.  Click on the title to open the detailed record. From the record for the item, navigate to the "Get It" section and click "Request a scan of a chapter or excerpt" (you do not need to sign in with your SSO to do this):

 

In the next window that opens, change the "Create Request" type from "Book" to "ARTICLE/BOOK CHAPTER".

 

The title of the book, author, and publication information should automatically be filled in. Add the "Title of Article/Title of Chapter" information into that field.  Also include the article or chapter author and the page numbers, if you have them.  If you don't know the page numbers, enter "Unknown".

 

Be sure to complete all other required (*) fields and then click "Submit".  You should receive an email notification to your EWU email when the scan has been uploaded.

 

REQUEST A SCAN FROM WITHIN WORLDCAT

From the record for the item in WorldCat, navigate to the "Find a copy in the Library" section and click "Request Item through Interlibrary Loan".  You will automatically be signed in to the Interlibrary Loan system; you may be prompted to enter your EWU Single Sign-on credentials.

 

In the next window that opens, change the "Create Request" type from "Book" to "ARTICLE/BOOK CHAPTER".

 

The title of the book, author, and publication information should automatically be filled in. Add the "Title of Article/Title of Chapter" information into that field.  Also include the article or chapter author and the page numbers, if you have them.  If you don't know the page numbers, enter "Unknown".

 

Be sure to complete all other required (*) fields and then click "Submit".  You should receive an email notification to your EWU email when the scan has been uploaded.

Additional Search Option: Google Scholar

Google Scholar can be used to search for scholarly resources across the Web.  Connect Google Scholar to the EWU Library holdings so that you have FREE access to resources the EWU Library subscribes to or owns. You will see "Find it @ EWU" in your results list, if EWU has access to the resource.

Connecting Google Scholar Results to EWU Full Text Holdings

You will need to go into Google Scholar settings to link the Google Scholar results to EWU's full text holdings.

Step 1: In Google Scholar, click Settings on the top of the screen. (If you don't see Settings, click More.) Note: If you are using your personal computer, sign in first, so that it will save your settings.

Step 2: Click Library links on the left (or top if your window is small).

Google Scholar settings

Step 3: Type in Eastern Washington University, then check the box for Eastern Washington University - Find It @ EWU. (You can uncheck the default Open WorldCat.) Click the Save button.

Now when you do a search in Google Scholar, you will see a link Find It @ EWU on the far right of the brief record. So for the article below, the dnai.org link does take you to the full text of the article, though it's a rather poor quality scan. But the Find It @ EWU also will link you to the version we have paid for in American Chemical Society Journals.
