IUPUI University Library Articles on Demand FAQ

What is Articles on Demand?

Articles on Demand is a service for faculty served by University Library and the Herron Art Library (all faculty except those in the Schools of Dentistry, Law, and Medicine). The service allows faculty to order and receive copies of journal articles not available in the library print or electronic collections without staff intervention. University Library will absorb the cost of the copies, which ranges from approximately $19 to $74.

How does Articles on Demand work?

For documentation on how the service works, please consult https://ill.ulib.iupui.edu/ILLiad/IUP/AoDDocumentation.pdf.

What journal titles are available through Articles on Demand?

Articles on Demand currently provides access to a select set of journals to which the library does not subscribe. A complete list of titles is available at https://ill.ulib.iupui.edu/ILLiad/IUP/AoDTitleList.pdf.

How were the available journal titles chosen?

While journal availability was initially limited to titles for which University Library cancelled subscriptions from which articles were frequently requested through interlibrary loan, University Library expanded the pool in 2018 to include any available title to which the Library had no other means of access. This brought the total number of titles available to 4,248.

Are there any limits on how many articles I can purchase?

There is currently a limit of 5 articles in an 8 hour time period per user. A user is also unable to purchase the same article again within a 48 hour time period.

I received a message saying that the article I attempted to purchase is not available. What does this mean?

Articles on Demand purchases are made through the Copyright Clearance Center’s Get It Now service. This message means that the Copyright Clearance Center has determined that the article is not available for purchase despite being from a participating publisher. You can still obtain this article by placing an interlibrary loan request at https://ill.ulib.iupui.edu/ILLiad/IUP/logon.html.
