Requesting Library Items: Interlibrary Loan: The article I want appears in Concordia’s EBSCO database, but I cannot get access to it. Why not?

The article I want appears in Concordia’s EBSCO database, but I cannot get access to it. Why not?

EBSCO functions as both a database of articles and an indexing service (“discovery service”) for journal articles and other materials.  Through EBSCO, you can discover what articles have been published on a topic you are researching.  You can also gain access to those articles through EBSCO.  However, for Concordia patrons to gain access to these articles cost-free, Concordia must have a subscription to the journal in question.  We have complete subscriptions to (a number of) scholarly journals, and partial subscriptions to many more, but no library can subscribe to every journal published.  If we do not have a subscription to a journal that you need, we can obtain articles from another library that subscribes to it, through Interlibrary Loan.
