That article is from the journal, "Professional Development". Unfortunately, IUP doesn't own a physical copy of that journal, nor to we have electronic access to it, either. Not every article found in the databases will be immediately available. Always check the PILOT online catalog to see what IUP owns. Since the article is not available at IUP, we can get a copy for you from another library through the Interlibrary Loan service. You will need to make a request through the ILLIAD system. To find ILLIAD, go to to the Library Home Page (www.iup.edu/library), click on "Books and More" and then on "ILLIAD (Interlibrary Loan). This will open the ILLIAD login page. In order to make requests through ILLIAD, you must be a registered user. If you don't already have an account, just follow the "First Time Users" link. This will take you to a page that explains the system and that has a "First Time Users Click Here" button at the bottom. Click that button to get the registration page. On the registration page, fill in the information requested (including your user ID and selection of password) and then click "Submit". You'll be immediately registered and taken to the main ILLIAD menu. On the main menu, you have the choice of several types of request. Select "Request a Photocopy" to ask for a journal article. This will bring up a form where you can enter the information about the item you need. When you click "Submit", the request will go to our Interlibrary Loan staff who will identify a library that owns the material and send the request to that library. Most of our partner libraries will scan copies of articles and send us an electronic version. We will then just forward that to your e-mail box. If we do receive a physical copy, you'll receive e-mail notification and then you can pick up the material at the Circulation Desk on the 1st floor of Stapleton Library. Average turnaround time for Interlibrary Loan requests is about 3-6 working days.
