Ordering Articles through Loansome Doc

If you are a practicing chiropractor or an alumni of any UWS professional program, the UWS Library will serve as your primary library for ordering articles through the Loansome Doc system.

Loansome Doc is a document delivery service sponsored by the National Library of Medicine. If you find a citation for an article* you would like to read in full, but are unable to access the full text, use the steps below to order the article from within PubMed through the Loansome Doc system: 

  1. Locate the article record in PubMed (see link below).
  2. Use the “Send to” drop-down menu to choose “Order” and click “Order articles.”
  3. Login to Loansome Doc (see link below) or sign up for a new account. You will need the UWS library code “ORUPWS” and your UWS library card number to complete the registration process. For help determining your library card number, contact Stephanie Debner, Head of Public Services and Instruction.
  4. Follow the steps indicated to complete the order process

*(Note: Only articles located within the PubMed database can be ordered this way; however, most health science articles can be found within PubMed even if the citation was originally found elsewhere.)

  • Loansome Doc
  • PubMed
    Comprises more than 19 million citations for biomedical articles from MEDLINE and life science journals. Citations may include links to full-text articles from PubMed Central or through the UWS library’s subscriptions.
