You’ve received them – what do you do now ?

  • Identify the article titles that you want a copy of.
  • Each article SHOULD have a PMID number near the end of the article.
  • To order the article from the library, just email or fax a list of the PMID numbers that you wish to order. Fax to 214-947-2334 or 214-947-2334. Email:
  • In the event that there is no PMID number, send us (a) the exact title of the article, (b) the principal author’s last name and first 2 initials, and (c) the year the article was published. We generally do NOT need the name of the journal, issue, etc.
  • In your email, indicate the date by which you need to have the articles.
  • Tell us where to deliver the articles or give us a fax number to which we can fax them.
  • Give us your name, phone number and/or email address so that we’ll have a way to get back to you if we have any questions.
  • Don’t hesitate to call us at (a) 214-947-2330 or (b) 214-947-2341 should there be a need.

In a crisis situation, we can usually get an article the same day if we receive the request no later than mid-day. However, it normally takes approximately 3 working days to get an article that we do not have in our own library.
