Allows interlibrary loan
yes 
Interlibrary loan notes
ILL of a single article is permitted using a printout from the electronic original. If transmitting via Ariel, the electronic file must be deleted immediately after printing. ILL is permitted for the purposes of research or private study but not for commercial use. If the publisher has imposed a restriction in the screen displays associated with their publications, the restriction overrides the general rule that allows for use of the materials in an appropriately run interlibrary loan program. [Section 1c and Interlibrary Loan Policy on p.4]
