Electronic Delivery

Do you have an email address?  If so you can get your articles within hours not days through electronic delivery!*

NLM has begun changing over to electronic delivery as the preferred delivery method to phase out traditional mailings.

What are your choices?

  • Posted to the Web - a hyperlink to the requested document will be sent through email
  • Email Attachment - documents can be sent in this format
  • Ariel -not yet available at Trinitas Regional Medical Center
  • Fax - if you need it even faster, documents can be faxed directly to you (surcharge applied)

What do I do?

  • First, you must get or have an email address
  • Then put it on the ILL request form or give it to the library staff upon ordering if you would like the article delivered directly to your desktop

Or

  • If you prefer, the document can be emailed directly to the staff's email address for pickup in the library

That's all there is to it!

*National Library of Medicine document delivery service only at this time

**Please note that most ILLs processed through the Library are fulfilled via our free cooperative networks and are not ordered from NLM as a first choice because NLM is a charge service ($9.00-11.00 per document. However should your document originate from NLM, this new service will be offered for your convenience.
