ILL articles upgraded with searchable text

Posted: Apr 05, 2018

Out-of-date Warning This news post is more than three months old and may contain out-of-date information.

You can now search the text of articles you request and receive from the UMD Libraries. By delivering searchable PDFs, we now satisfy the number one request voiced by ILL users in a recent survey and facilitate access by users with a print disability.

While this service is provided routinely for texts written in a Latin script, we can also accommodate requests to deliver searchable files in Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean, Russian and other Cyrillic languages.

Use the Request OCR link on the Electronically Received Articles page of your ILL Services Account.
