When we do not have access to a journal article or book, we will try to obtain the item from another library. Typically journal articles are received within 2 business days and other items can take longer. Make your request using interlibrary loan - ILLiad.
Look for these keywords in the citation to determine if you are looking for a conference paper: proceeding, symposium, meeting, colloquium, seminar, convention, congress, or forum. If you do not have a complete citation, try a database to find additional information.
Do not spend more than 15 minutes looking for a conference paper. Many papers are difficult to find. Contact me, I am here to help.
