If you have the article’s citation information (author, year, journal title, volume, etc.), you can search for it using the Citation Linker (if you are off-campus, you must log in with your University ID and password). That will take you to "Find It", which will indicate whether the article is available online, on the shelf (i.e., we have a paper copy), or if you need to request a scanned copy through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). If you are a graduate student or faculty member, you can request a scanned copy of an article we have in print through Scan & Deliver.
If you do not know the citation information, you can search by entering the first few words of the article's title and the last name of one author into the search box on the Libraries' homepage. Choose the article from the list of results; to access the full text, click either "Find It" or "View online."
You can also try googling the article title to get the journal name, volume, etc, which you can then search via the Citation Linker. The Libraries also have Google Scholar embedded with other databases so that its findings will often link through the Libraries with full text when GS alone cannot offer this result.
