DL Student - Help obtaining Article

Hello, this is John Schafer here – a DL LLM student out in California.

Can you help me obtain a copy of the following article – I tried search via the various VLS online library tools and data bases but am unable to locate a copy of it (the closest I got was to Sciencedirect, but I was told it is not available via VLS’ subscription).

Kennedy, M., & Basu, B. (2014). An analysis of the climate change architecture. Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, 34, 185-193.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dear John,

Thank you for contacting the VLS library. You are correct that the only VLS subscription database including this journal is Science Direct.  Unlike our other IP authenticated or individually passworded databases, VLS users need to request Science Direct articles through our Interlibrary Loan service, called ILLIAD.

To access, and set up, your ILLIAD account, use the Request Interlibrary Loan page,, off of the VLS library's portal site. You will need your VLS login to access this page. Articles typically arrive within a few days, and sometimes sooner. There is no charge to VLS users for the ILLIAD service. Since you know that the article you are seeking is in Science Direct, you may want to include this detail in the notes section of you request. We may obtain your requested article from another library or we may opt to buy it for you from Science Direct.

Good luck with your research and please let us know if we can be of further assistance to you,
