How Do I Get Full Text in the Databases?
When searching in databases:
Clicking this button in the database will search for the full text of an article. It may open up the article automatically, or you will get a menu of options to get the article:
- Get the article online, if available
- See if the article is available in print (linkout to Roger)
- Request via interlibrary loan if we don't have it.
Use our ILL service to request items the library does not own.
