Welcome to the Libraries' ENGL 500 Class Research Guide! This guide is designed to help you learn how to use K-State Libraries' many resources. If this guide does not have the information you are looking for, don't hesitate to Ask A Librarian for help any time during the Libraries' service hours.

Contact Sara K. Kearns for a research consultation via phone, email, Zoom (video conference), or in person!

Additional Resources

In addition to the journals and databases recommended on this guide, Dr. Alexis suggests that these resources may be useful for your research.

Interlibrary Loan

When K-State Libraries doesn't own a book, journal article, film, or other resource that you need, we'll try to borrow it for you from another library. This service is called Interlibrary Loan. We can obtain most types of materials through Interlibrary Loan, but we are not able to borrow textbooks. 

How much does it cost?:  

Interlibrary Loan requests are usually handled at no out-of-pocket cost to K-State students, faculty, and staff - the costs are paid by the Libraries. If there is a cost for the loan, you will be asked ahead of time if you still want the item, but this is very rare.

Using Interlibrary Loan with Get It:

When you use the Get It link from one of our databases, it will take you to a screen of options, including the Interlibrary Loan request screen.

Get It

Place an Interlibrary Loan request. Fulfillment of requests can take:

  • 2-5 days for electronically received copies (typically articles, chapters, or sections from books 50 pages and under)
  • 3-10 days for books, videos, and anything else we get through the mail
  • Distance patrons need to plan a little more in advance and add additional 3-7 days for UPS delivery of physical materials

You can read more about Interlibrary Loan and the frequently asked questions on the Interlibrary Loan page.
