The previous section showed you how to find and download the full text (usually a PDF) of a database article through services like EBSCOhost. But what if the full text isn't available online?
Watch the video below to learn how to search the library catalog to see if the University owns the journal title in print or if the article can be obtained from another institution or library via Interlibrary Services.
Show me written instructions instead
If an article doesn't indicate that the full text is available (usually designated with a PDF link), a "Find Full Text" link will appear instead.
If a full text version of the article can be found, you'll have access to the article. Otherwise, a screen showing various resources for obtaining the article will appear.
Click "Search the Library Catalog" to see if the University owns the journal title in print.
Note: This will redirect you to the library catalog. If the University does own the journal, use the process you learned in Part 3 to find the journal in the library.
If the University does not own the journal title in print, return to the previous screen and click "Request this item through Interlibrary Services".
Fill out the request form to receive the article through another library. This should be free, and an electronic delivery method should be available.
