Inter-library Loan


Inter-library Loan (ILL) is a service that enables patrons of one library to borrow physical materials and receive electronic documents that are held by another library.

Stimson offers ILL services for all staff and students. This includes if you find an article blocked by a pay wall, or want to read a book that we don't have in our collection.

Research Support

Have a question? Contact us!

Send the library an email, stop by, or call with your clinical or literature search question.
If you are working on a research project and need this for publication, please indicate this in your communications so we can ensure your search is an appropriate depth and meets your needs.

What is a Literature search?

Literature search is a systematic search from the already published data to identify a breadth of quality references on a specific topic. This can be done in varying levels of depth based on patron needs.

A Librarian can assist you with:

  • Building a PICO(T) question or refining a clinical question
  • Recommending helpful databases and other resources
  • Identifying relevant search terms
  • Searching based on a clinical question through literature search.
    This can be done to:
    • Gather general information
    • Survey literature before a research project
