I was looking up a journal in OskiCat that turned out to be located at the NRLF. I noticed a message that read "Request an article from NRLF (photocopy or web delivery)." Is this free, and/or too good to be true?

Luckily for you, this service is both free and easy. The NRLF Article Request service allows UC Berkeley faculty, students, staff, and library patrons to use OskiCat to request electronic or print copies of book chapters, conference papers, or journal articles located at the NRLF. For eligible journal or book titles at NRLF, you'll see this message in the item's OskiCat record:

NRLF request in OskiCat

If you are requesting a photocopy, you'll be able to choose the UC Berkeley library location you want your requested item/copy to be sent (within about two working days - usually sooner when delivered to the Main Stacks). If you prefer an electronic copy, it will be posted to the web (within two working days) and NRLF will notify you of its URL via e-mail. Please note that requests for items with "Restricted Use" will not be filled.
