Plan A: Press the Orange Button

  • The orange "Find Full Text" button next to some citations will lead you to other databases in our library that have the journal containing the article you want to read
  • Example:
  • ​​​​​​​



Plan B: Look on Google

  • Search for your article on Google.
    • Seriously.
    • The Interlibray Loan folks do this.
    • These days, with open source journals and digital repositories, many articles are on the web.
  • The trick to searching:
    • Carefully, copy and paste the title of the article you want to read into the Google search bar.
    • Carefully, put quotation marks "" on both ends of the title.
    • This keeps all the words in the title together.

Plan C: Request the Article from Another Library
