Nutrition 440 (Kim): Getting Articles

Using Journals & Periodicals Search



Interlibrary Loan

When you run across articles that Pepperdine does not have electronic or print access to, you will need to request the article through ILLiad (our Interlibrary Loan software). 

  • it does not cost you anything to do an Interlibrary Loan
  • it is usually quite quick (2-5 days)
  • the article is scanned and made available to you electronically

 Your ILLiad account uses your Wavenet username and password.  You will need to create an account in ILLiad the first time you use Interlibrary Loan.
