Obtaining Documents Listed in REHABDATA

Many of the books and reference documents listed in REHABDATA should be available through your academic or public library.  Most academic and public libraries can also obtain journal articles for you. To get a document, book, or journal article, your library will need the full citation, so be sure to bring the entire abstract with you or write down all the bibliographic information, including the page numbers.

If you would like to request a copy of an article or if you have any questions about document delivery services, call a NARIC information specialist at 800/346-2742 (V), 301/459-5900 (V), or 301/459-5984 (TTY) between 8:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Eastern time. When taking a request, the information specialist will ask for the information in the ACCESSION NUMBER field (a number beginning with an R, O, or J) and will confirm that the item is available for document delivery.   Js are journal articles, Rs are reference volumes, Os are original, federally funded research. Most of the R documents will likely be restricted by copyright and unavailable for document delivery. The information specialist will then arrange to have it shipped to you.  NARIC charges 5¢ per page for copying, including shipping and handling, with a minimum charge of $5. An invoice will be sent along with the requested material. The same information can be submitted through our information request form. You will still need the accession number and you must provide an email address or phone number so we may contact you if there is a problem.

Some reports and documents can be obtained directly from the publisher or institution which issued the report.  When this is the case, the contact information is listed in the AVAILABILITY field of the abstract.  Please note: We offer a limited number of electronic copies of the documents in our collection.

NARIC is also able to provide a photocopy of certain journal articles through our document delivery service.  As with all library document delivery services, this service is subject to the copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) which governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material.  Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction.  One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.  If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of fair use, that user may be liable for copyright infringement. NARIC reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
