Copies -  Article, book chapter, conference, etc. - anything that can be scanned and emailed

Use the Hostos Library Journal Search to make sure the item is not available to you through Hostos.

If we do not own the title, or the issue is unavailable, request the item through your Tipasa InterLibrary Loan account by logging in here.

Copy requests must have full title of a journal, journal article title, issue number and year.

Each article requires a separate request even if there are many within the same issue of a journal.

  • You can help us find exactly what you need by providing the ISSN number for the journal, but that information is not required for submission of the request.

To submit a request for a book chapter,  choose "Book chapter" from the left-hand side menu in Tipasa.

  • Each chapter requires a separate request.
  • In most cases, a library may provide a maximum of 1 chapter, or 30 pages from one book.  We reserve the right to cancel any requests that exceed a library's copying limit.
