Requesting Bound Journals from Storage

Wheaton College ID holders with campus logins and ILLiad/I-Share accounts have two ways to request a bound journal volume from storage. (There is no change in article requesting--use ILLiad.)

  1. Request journal manually in ILLiad:
    • Login to ILLiad.
    • Under the “New Request” heading at the left, click “Bound Journal”
    • Complete the request form for the desired journal volume and issue.
    • Click “Submit Request”
    • An email will be sent when the journal is available for pick-up at the Circulation Desk.
  2. Request journal via Library Search Interface:

Off-campus visitors with active borrowing accounts can place requests using a paper “Journal Service Slip” form available at the Circulation Desk.  (We do not provide retrieval service for Wheaton Public Library visitors and other visitors without borrowing accounts.)

Bound Journals:

  • All visitors with borrowing accounts can request retrieval of journal volumes that the library owns.
  • An email will be sent to the requestor when the item is available at the Circulation Desk.


  • Visitors associated with other academic institutions, such as I-Share and ATLA visitors, should place requests for articles through their own academic institution’s interlibrary loan service.
  • Alumni & local residents with paid borrower accounts can also use the paper form to request specific articles from library-owned journals. Articles will be scanned and sent to the requestor by email as a PDF attachment.

Bound journal retrieval normally takes 1-3 business days.

Retrieved journals may be used in the library for as long as desired, but must be returned to the Circulation Desk when the requestor leaves the building.
