Getting the Article

Many of our databases will give you the full-text of the article, but that is not always the case.  If the full-text of the article is not available in the database you are looking at, try these options:

  • look for the FIND IT icon:  if the database does not have the full-text, you still might be able to get it from another of our resources.  If we have full-text available, FIND IT will lead you to it. 
  • if you already have a citation, you can check to see if we have a particular journal (in print or electronic full-text) by using the Journal Finder  Search by the journal name -- you will need to know the year, volume, issue and pages you need.
  • If we don't have an article in electronic full-text, but DO have it in print, you can request a copy be scanned and emailed to you.  You can find out more on the Article E-Delivery page.
