To request an item from the Library Service Center (LSC) using discoverE:

  1. Login to your library account -- top right in discoverE. (If you are Emory alumni or have an affiliate or courtesy account, you will need to login via the "Affiliate" login.)
  2. Click on the "Request" tab in the item record.
  3. Select the preferred pickup library for your request and click "Request."  You will receive a pickup notice when the item is available.


If you are requesting a journal from the LSC:

  • You will have the option of requesting scans of the specific article(s) you need.  
  • You must be registered in the ILLiad interlibrary loan and document delivery system in order for your article request(s) to be processed.
  • You will be notified when requested articles are available, and can access them by logging into your ILLiad account.


If you are a non-Emory patron without a library account, storage items can be requested for in house use only.
