How to Get the Full Text of Articles


1. Click on any link in your abstract that says "Full Text" to see if it will bring you to the full article. Also try links like "View at Publisher."


2. If these do not work, check the Journal Finder to see if the library subscribes to that e-journal. If we do, simply click through to the correct issue and then the correct article. (Look at your citation to find this information).


3. If neither of those options gets you full text, use interlibrary loan to request the article. Depending on your article, you could receive it via email (at the address you specify) in a few hours or a few days -- but it's usually quick!


4. You can always email Kari at and ask for help in getting full text!
