There are over 120 theses that have been digitized that have not been officially “cataloged”. For ILL purposes, when we get a request for a theses or dissertation, we then check the book to see if we it’s available online or if we have permission to send a copy.
IF you find a thesis that has been digitized, but due to it’s age or the author’s choice it is not available online we do have access to the scanned digital file which will save us from scanning it again. Look on S:\\Theses. They are all there by thesis number.
Once the theses have been cataloged, they will come up full text but if there are restrictions,the file will only be able to be viewed here in the library. We will then be able to grab the file from there.
Sarah noticed something peculiar today, so this brought me to set down in writing the hierarchy of where to look to see if we can send an article full text.
1) Check the Knowledge Base. To do this, use the Collections Tab. If links appear and say YES…click the link to get to the PDF file.
If the KB says NO….
2) Check the Innovative Addon and check the “About Resourse” tab for the title. If it says ILL permitted, proceed to the Citation Linker tab to see if we have the article in full text.
3) If the answer to all is NO…we need to see if we have it in print and get it pulled from the stacks.
I hope I have finally gotten this straight:
