Article Request Form

User Guides

The purpose of this service is to obtain articles that are not available at the Suna Kıraç Library. SKL obtains copies of articles by working in co-operation with other libraries and institutions. It is usually a library-to-library transaction including both academic libraries and information centers. All KU faculty, administrative staff, graduate and undergraduate students can benefit from this service, which is free of charge. Faculty and staff can submit 10 articles while students are only permitted to request 5 articles at a time.

If the Library could not find the requested article in Turkey, the Library staff will search for the article on OCLC ILL Service.

To benefit from this service, users should fill and submit Online Article Request form under “Services/ Document Delivery” link. Whenever users utilize this system, the system will automatically send an e-mail to the responsible librarian to alert her/him about the request. When request was completed, users will get another e-mail informing whether it has been found or not. Articles may be received approximately in two weeks. For students, received articles are kept at the Information Desk on the Basement Floor while requested articles by faculty and staff are sent to their offices.
