Finding Full Text Articles

While some databases include the full text of articles, others only provide citations. Citations may include the Find It link to help you find full text through other sources.

When an article in a database does not include full text, click on the Find It - Check for Full Text button. 

You may be redirected to the article, the journal, the library catalog, or to interlibrary loan.

If you have any problems, ask a librarian for help.
