Why did I get no hits when I clicked on "View Online" or “See if your VCSU owns this title”?

Possible reasons:

  • VCSU library doesn’t subscribe to all the titles indexed in our databases. If you find an article or journal that is not available, may request it through our Interlibrary Loan service.  Links to ILL Requests - Books or ILL Requests - Articles forms.
  • SFX is a convenient way of searching our library catalog that works most of the time but it isn’t 100% accurate due to differences in cataloging and indexing practices of various publishers and vendors. If there is no results, try searching our library catalog Primo.

SFX linking service is a convenient shortcut but it’s not perfect. If you do not find what you are looking for ask a librarian for help via Real-time Chat, call us at 701-845-7277, email us or visit our FAQ page.
