CMST 238 Intercultural Communication: Articles & ILL

Why Use Different Types of Articles?

Different types of articles give you different flavors of the information you need:

  • Scholarly or Peer-Reviewed or Academic Journal articles are good to find results of scientific or academic research.  They are written for scholars and provide in-depth analysis of a very specific area of your topic  (more info...)
  • Trade Journal articles are good for finding articles written for specific professions (police officer, veterinarian...etc.)  They often analyze new trends, research, tools or techniques important to their area of work (more info...)
  • Popular Magazine articles are good for summarizing information on a topic for the general public.  They often provide a background, summarize research findings, and provide some analysis of a topic (more info...)
  • Newspaper articles are good for facts and up-to-date information.  They often provide little analysis of a topic. (more info...)

Requesting Articles with InterLibrary Loan

Requesting items from other libraries

You can have articles or books sent to you from other libraries by using an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request.
  • Most articles requested by ILL come as a digital copy, and you'll receive the article as an attachment in an email. (Typically 2-3 business days.)
  • If the item is difficult to locate or an item that needs to be mailed (like a book), the request can take longer-- usually 1-2 weeks.
  • Make sure to give yourself enough time for the item to arrive before your assignment is due.

Filling out the ILL form

  1. Go to the Holman Library's Interlibrary Loan page and select "Student Request Form." Log in with your first and last name and your Green River student ID number:
