Hello!

JAMA is not covered in any of our databases, so we have to request it from another library. It's easy to ask us to try to get an article from JAMA, or from any other journal, or to get a book you need for your research.

To place the request, simply complete the Information Delivery form at http://library.brenau.edu/infodelivery-and-ill/request-an-item/ . Read the information on copyright, and click "submit". Our Information Delivery specialist will begin locating the article right away. We will find libraries that have it and ask one to send it to us. Articles come electronically, books come by snail mail. When we get the item we will send it on to you. Usually we can get articles within 3-14 days; books can take up to 21 days. How fast we can get an item from another library depends on several factors including age, how many libraries in the U.S. own the item, and its initial cost. Occasionally we can't get an item at all, but that doesn't happen very often.

I checked with our Info Delivery specialist and she doesn't anticipate problems getting this article. She will start on it as soon as you submit the request.
