DMSc Library Toolkit


The ATSU Library provides interlibrary loan services at no charge to students. Using interlibrary loan, you can get the full text of any article, including articles from journals we don't subscribe to. 

Students have access to unlimited ILL services.

To use ILL, access the Ask-A-Librarian form and fill out the requested information. Be sure to include the citation for the article(s) you need so we know what to look for.

ILL requests are typically processed in 1-2 business days, but please allow for up to ten days before following up on a request.


The ATSU librarians create a wide range of LibGuides - online research guides- on a variety of topics, such as this toolkit. These include topic guides, course-specific guides, tutorials on various aspects of the research process, guides on using our databases, and more.

You can see a full list using our LibGuides index, always available from the top navigation bar.
