How to locate full-text article:
If you're having trouble locating full-text of an item, search the title in the Library's "Everything" tab search box to find out if the item is available in any other database/location. If it's not available, the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request button will be visible to select.
Database link tip:
When you are looking at an article in a database, the URL (or link) that you see in your browser's address bar is sometimes only active for the length of your search session. This means if you save the link and try to return to the article the next day, you will see an error.
If a database offers a permalink, permanent link, direct link, or bookmark, copy this instead. This is a stable link that will allow you to return to the article or page at a later time.
