Have you encountered an article or book chapter that is unavailable in our collection? Is this article or book chapter something you need for a research project you are trying to complete for a course here at Walden? If so, you can request the full text for free using our Document Delivery Service!
Please note: DDS is not intended to be used for articles or book chapters you want for discussion posts; this service is also not used for obtaining the optional readings encountered in your courses. Contact Ask a Librarian for help with these sorts of materials.
No, copies of journal articles and book chapters are free of charge. However, we retain the right to cancel requests when the cost of obtaining an article incurred by Walden Library exceeds $55.
Articles will be sent to you in 7 to 10 business days. Sorry, rush service is not available for DDS requests.
You will receive an email with a link to a PDF document. Please check your junk mail or other email filtering settings to make sure the message arrives in your inbox. You should also ensure that you have PDF reading software installed, such as Adobe Acrobat Reader
Requests may be denied or closed without delivery for a number of reasons:
Walden librarian reviews DDS requests upon submission. However, requests are then sent out to our partner libraries for completion. All Walden DDS requests are subject to policies and procedures set forth by our partner institutions.
