It’s a quick and free online process for the active UMD community (faculty/staff/students), and we’ll try to get an electronic copy of your article (pdf) as quickly as possible. Turnaround time varies for those we can obtain, but many articles are received within 48 hours.
Do you need a book we don’t own? The same service can get you books from other libraries! Books we can obtain take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to arrive, so please plan ahead.

The election is only a week away! Tomorrow at 2pm, Congressmen Joe Kennedy and Bill Keating will be at the CTC Library as part of Congressman Kennedy’s “Your Vote, Your Voice College Tour.” Then at 4 pm, UMass Dartmouth’s own Professor Shannon Jenkins will present Run, Baby, Run:
Why Women Don’t But Should Run for Political Office.
What: Your Vote, Your Voice College Tour
Who: Congressmen Joe Kennedy and Bill Keating
When: 2pm Wednesday, November 2nd
Where: Claire T. Carney Library Living Room
What: Run, Baby, Run: Why Women Don’t But Should Run for Political Office. This is A short talk followed a wine and cheese reception, and conversation.
Who: Professor Shannon Jenkins
When: 4pm Wednesday, November 2nd
Where: Claire T. Carney Library Robert F. Stoico/FIRSTFED Grand Reading Room
Summary: Professor Jenkins’ ARNIE talk will explore both why it is important to have women in elected office and why so few women seek to do so. Ultimately, the research suggests that while there are many explanations for the under-representation of women in office, the most important is the fact that women are less likely to consider running for office. This talk will also explore ways that are effective in helping women overcome this reluctance, one of which is to ask women to run for office. Thus, this talk will serve a dual purpose: both informing the audience about important research AND motivating them to change current conditions.
