Journal Article Request Service

Once a new issue of a periodical arrives at the SELS office, we will scan and distribute the table of contents via email. From there, you can request the articles you’d like to read. We’ll scan and send them to you as soon as we can. That way, you can enjoy them right away, or save them for later; read them whenever! Scanned copies of articles can be shared among staff, volunteers, and board members; they are not for general distribution and circulation. We can send one scanned copy of an article per institution. We’ll complete article requests as soon as possible, but please allow some leeway, in case the SELS staff is away from the office.

Journals currently available:

Simply email the SELS office at with the journals you’d like to receive notifications for, and we’ll put you on a mailing list for those publications. This service is only for libraries within the current SELS service area in southeastern Nebraska. Policies and journal offerings are subject to change. If there is a journal you’d like to see added to the service, feel free to submit it for consideration. We appreciate your ideas and feedback; please email us with any questions and concerns.
