LibAnswers: Get It For Me FAQS

How to place a Get It For Me request


You can request items through Get It For Me by searching for them in Library Search. This will pull results from our resources and all over the world and speed up the process of requesting materials. Here’s how it works:

  • Search for the item you're interested in using the Library Search bar on the homepage or by clicking the Library Search tab on the blue bar at the top of the homepage. 



  • If you don’t see the item you’re looking for in the search results, select the expand your search button located at the top of the results list 

  • The system will then conduct a wider search for the item. If found, it should be located near the top of the results and will say Get It For Me. 

  • Select that item and sign-in with your OHSU credentials. Then select the blue Get It button, which will automatically generate the request with all the necessary citation information. You’ll receive an email when the article is available for you.  


  • Please note: If your item doesn’t appear after using expand your search, select the Send a custom request button at the top of the page to manually request the item.
