Did you know we deliver articles straight to you?

That's right! As a service to you, we obtain material from libraries worldwide. If the item you want is unavailable in the Dykes Library collection, we'll find it for you.

Using the ILLiad electronic system, students, staff, faculty and any registered patron can obtain materials that support scholarly research. Articles are typically delivered online to your ILLiad account within just two business days.

Regular delivery requests for KUMC faculty, staff and students are either $3.00 or free! Please see our fee chart for additional information.

You can also place an order for a book, book chapter, conference paper or thesis. Take a look at ILLiad today!
