Most of our databases work with our interlibrary loan system. Please check Journal Finder first to see if we own the item in another database. The link to request the article through ILL appears in the same area as the Journal Finder link and once clicked, will populate the ILL form once you have logged into the ILL system. In the database, you will see the following links:
As a CNU student, faculty, or staff member you are able to borrow materials from libraries at other area colleges and universities that belong to the Virginia Tidewater Consortium (VTC) for Higher Education. BEFORE you go to another library, you must fill out a short VTC application and obtain a borrower card at the Circulation Desk in the Trible Library. You must present the VTC borrower card and your CNU ID at a member institution library in order to borrow materials. The VTC cards are good for one semester.
Do you need materials not available at Trible Library?
You can obtain many things through CNU's Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service. ILL@CNU is a free service for all of the Christopher Newport community. It can be an invaluable resource and expands the resources to which you have access. We are only able to borrow articles, books, and other items that are not available at Trible Library. To view ILL guidelines and information, please see our FAQ.
To see if CNU has the material you need, please visit the Trible Library catalog (for books, DVDs, CDs, and other items) or Journal Finder (for journals). If you need help finding materials, please visit a reference librarian for assistance.
