Finding Full-Text Articles

When you are searching in the Library's databases look first for a link to a PDF filePDF file.

If no PDF link is available look for the Get it button.
This button allows you to:

  1. See if the article is available online in ANY of the Library's databases, not just the one you are using.
  2. Search the Library's Catalog to see if the article is available in the library (if it is not online).
  3. Automatically do an interlibrary loan request if the article is not available online or in the library.
