Some Things to Know About the Article Request Process

Who is eligible?

Graduate level students and all faculty

How long does it take to get an article?

Articles are processed M-F during business hours and may take up to 7-20 business days to be delivered.  

What type of materials can be ordered?

Article requests are limited to those items available in our document delivery system.

Only scholarly research articles for assignments, projects and committee work will be requested. 

Items that cannot be ordered include:

  • Material for discussion posts
  • Requests for conference abstracts, editorials and non-research articles
  • Print and media items

How many articles can be requested?

  • No more than 5 articles per day
  • No more than 15 articles per patron in a calendar year

How to set up an account?

  • An account can be created using the Access Article Request link below.
  • An accurate Chamberlain University email address will need to be provided when setting up an account. This will ensure email alerts for article availability are delivered. 
  • Providing a non-Chamberlain University email address will result in the request being cancelled.


  • The maximum cost for a single article request is set to $45.  We can order articles that exceed this maximum cost on a case by case basis, but the ordering of these articles will count for two articles toward the total of the allotted 15 articles per calendar year for a patron.
  • Articles are ordered for the sole use of the patron and are not to be redistributed or included in courses.
