EndNote logo

Before you start your research, make sure to download EndNote or sign up online! EndNote is a citation manager program that helps you collect, organize, and manage references to articles, books, dissertations, Web pages, and more.  It can assist you in citing resources in your papers and creating bibliographies for those papers in a citation style of your choice. See EndNote Tips for more information.

Interlibrary Loan

SLU doesn't own the article or book you need? We can find it for you! You will need to sign up for an ILLiad account before you can request items through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). If you have questions about ILL, contact Rebecca, or PIUS ILL directly.

Remember: Never pay online to access an article, if SLU doens't already subscribe to a journal, we will get the article for you from another library.
