I need a scholarly article but the webpage says I need to pay for it!

Repeat this.  Never pay for a scholarly article if you are a registered student.  If Cheng Library does not subscribe to an academic journal, we can get a free scan of the article from area academic libraries.  To check if Cheng, subscribes to a journal, go to  Choose Journals A-Z.  Type in the name of your journal, Search, and you will see if we subscribe and which dates we have in our databases.  If we do not subscribe to the journal, enter a Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request here.  The library will notify you via email when your article request is ready.  It’s that easy!
