Partner Libraries: Enhancing the PHDL Collection

Posted by on August 5th, 2021 Posted in: Blog, How To, PHDL Resources, Regional Interest

The Public Health Digital Library is proud to partner with health science libraries

that are located in our members’ communities.

Partner Libraries are members of the PHDL and the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM).  They provide access to full text articles not in the PHDL collection.  They also support the PHDL’s local instruction programs and can help with reference questions and projects.

Ordering an article through your partner library is easy.   When you create a login to the new PHDL site or access the new site from your office’s network, your account is linked to your Partner Library’s document delivery system.  Partner Libraries use a variety of methods to process requests.    Document Delivery forms include specific instructions for accessing and ordering from your Partner Library’s interlibrary loan system.  So whether it is email or ILL, your contact  information along with the citation information of our article is sent to your partner library in as few steps as possible.

Your Document Delivery form can be accessed from the menu at the top of the PHDL page.   Here is a screenshot of a document delivery page:

Please let us know if you have any questions about your partner Library of document delivery by emailing us at phdl@umassmed.edu.
