Office delivery is a library service to faculty and is used to request journal articles and books available in Gordon's library.

To request an article:

  • Please check the Journal Finder for the journal title. If the article you need is full text, you can access it from the database. If the article is held in print or microform, then fill out the request form below and a photocopy of the article will be sent to you through campus mail.
  • ​Please do not abbreviate any information.

If you have checked Journal Finder and this article is only available in print or microform, please fill out the article delivery request form (link below).

To request books from Gordon's holdings for delivery through intercampus mail, please fill out the book delivery request form (link below).


Full time faculty may request to receive current issues of a particular journal through the library's journal routing service.

A list of print journals for each department or major is located on the Research Guide Web pages. Choose the research guide for your discipline and look for "print journals" on the page.

To sign up for journal routing, contact Erica Street by email or phone x4345.

Routing Guidelines

  • You may keep an issue for 4 to 7 days, and then send it to the next person on the routing list through campus mail.
  • If there are no other names on the routing list, please return the journal to the Periodicals Office through campus mail.
  • Please note that most journals on display in the Bistro are not routed, to ensure timely access for all users.
  • Unfortunately, routing cannot continue if issues are repeatedly kept beyond the 7 day limit. It is important that current journals be available for all to use.


You can set up a journal alert in EBSCO or Gale/Infotrac, to receive an email with links to full text articles, each time a new issue is available.

  • From the library home page, choose Journal Finder, and search for a journal title.
  • Choose an EBSCO or Gale/Infotrac, database from the ones listed underneath the journal name.

In an EBSCO database (Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier, PsycARTICLES, etc.) :

At the top right of the middle screen section, click on "Alert / Save / Share". Then choose "Create an Alert".

You will need a "My EBSCOhost account" to enable email delivery. If you do not already have one, select "I'm a new user" to set up an account.

Once you are into your "My EBSCOhost" account, follow the directions for setting the journal alert or editing the RSS Feed.

In most Gale/Infotrac databases (Expanded Academic ASAP, Academic OneFile, General OneFile, etc.):

Email Alert:
Click "Search Alert/RSS Feed" icon at the right of the center section of the screen.

Fill in your email address and select a frequency. You will receive an email alert for the journal whether or not a new issue is available. (The RSS feed feature below is more intelligent and will notify you only when a new issue is available.)

RSS Feed:
Copy the Feed URL at the bottom of the "Create Journal Alert" page and add it to your RSS feed reader. You will receive an RSS feed alert each time a new issue is available in the Gale database.

Faculty may request multiple titles from the NOBLE catalog, or multiple items by a certain author or on a specific topic, for class use. Please contact the Jenks Library Interlibrary Loan Office.
