Getting Full Text Articles

If you do not see a full text article link look for the Cook Library Find It button in order to:

  • Access online full text (when available)
  • See if the journal is available in print (library catalog)
  • Request a pdf of the article if full text is not available online (Interlibrary loan)

If you have the citation for the article you are trying to access, search the Journal List to check if the library subscribes to your specific article.

Finding Articles from a Citation

Use the "Journal List" to find a specific journal or article

  • In the journal list, search for the name of the journal
  • Date ranges show the time span the journal is available in a particular location (e.g., a specific database or on the shelf at the library)

The "Journal List" is also available from the library's homepage.
