ArticleReach Direct

What is ArticleReach Direct?

ArticleReach Direct is an international consortium of academic and public libraries.  Members have created a combined catalog of their journal collections.  Tulsa City-County Library card holders may request articles from other member libraries by requesting them online with the ArticleReach Direct Request Form.  You will be notified by email when the article is available; you must have an email address on file with the library to use this service.

How do I know if the library has my email address on file?

At, log into My Account using your username or barcode and password.  If you have never logged in, please see How Do I register for the catalog?

Once logged in, click on the dropdown menu in the upper right hand corner of the page and select My Settings.  Under Account Information, select Email Address.  If your current email address is present in the email address box, then the library has your email on file.  If the email address box is blank, type in your email, and click Save Changes.

How long will it take to get my article?

 Average delivery time is a couple of days.

How long do I have access to the requested article?

The link within the notification email will stay active for 30 days.  Within the 30 days, you will be able to access the article electronically, save it to a storage device and print it.
