The article I want is not available/I have to pay for the article I want?
If you are looking for an article which is not available electronically through the Open University Library then you can:
Request articles from the inter-library loan service provided by your local public library. There is often a charge for this service and it may take up to a few weeks to arrive.
Join the SCONUL Access Scheme and access the collections of local participating academic libraries. You can check whether a library holds the journal you need by looking in other library catalogues.
Buy a copy of the article using the British Library Document Supply Service.
Some online journal providers, e.g. ingentaconnect.com, offer the choice of paying to view articles. Search an electronic journal collection to see if this option is available.
OU staff and postgraduate research students can use our Document delivery service.
