The information below will provide assistance to locating scholarly articles:

  • Pace Library Databases: Each database below includes some environmental science information and provides access to a unique group of publications, so search more than one in order to be comprehensive.
  • Inter-Library Loan: There may be articles in the Pace Databases for which we don't have full text access but can be requested through inter-library loan. 
  • Searching the Databases: Use the tutorial videos from our librarians to learn how to effectively search our resources.

Requesting Full Text Articles

What if you find an article and only the "Search for Item" icon is shown? 

When you find an article listed in a research database, and there is not PDF or HTML immediately available, use the "Search for Item" icon.

This will search all of Pace's holdings (print and electronic) to see if we have full text. If you get a message that says, "Sorry, no full text available," click the link that says "ILLiad New York and Pleasantville" to request a copy of the article.  You need to register for the ILLiad service in order to place a request. 

Electronic PDFs of the full text take an average of 2 business days to arrive. You will be emailed a link back to the ILLiad form, and select "View/Download Electronically Received Articles" to get a link to the PDF.
