Interlibrary Loan allows you to request materials from libraries across the globe. ILL is the perfect way to get electronic copies of articles that the UW-Green Bay Libraries don't own, as well as books, movies, music or anything else you're interested in. Articles generally arrive within 1-3 business days and physical items within 5-8 business days.
Detailed requesting information can be found on the Placing an ILL Request page.
Libraries purchase databases which index journal articles and often provide full-text copies of those articles. Although purchased databases are accessed through the internet, they are not "internet sources" or "websites." Instead, think of these sources as products designed to facilitate academic research.

Sources other than licensed databases are freely available via Google or other search engines. These may, or may not, be the kind of information that can be used for a research paper.
