For graduate students, staff, and faculty members

What is the Need ASAP service?

While W&M Libraries subscribes to thousands of journals, you are bound to run across references to journal articles we do not have access to online.  We are committed to getting you the articles you need, though.  In addition to our very popular Interlibrary Loan service, we have added "Need ASAP." Clicking on the Need ASAP link sends your request to an unmediated server which will automatically find the article, pay for the copyright, and send you a copy via email. It should take less than 10 minutes for it to arrive in your inbox!

Need ASAP is available 24/7 and is restricted to graduate students, staff, and faculty members.

You can continue to use interlibrary loan for less time-sensitive items, but if you want something right away, please use Need ASAP.
