Requesting journals or articles in RUQuest

Closed Stack
Use the button 'Request item' to request the journal. You can consult the journal in the Central Library or the Medical Library.

If an article is not available at RU you can usually request it through interlibrary loan (ILL). This is not for free. You need an ILL-account for this. For more information see Request outside RU(ILL).
