How do I get the Full-text of my article?

To get the Full-Text of an article:

- If you are in a library database with "Check for full text" buttons, click on "Check for full text". It will take you the full text of your article or tell you that the full-text cannot be found. If the full text is not available from Trexler Library, interlibrary loan the book or article

- If you have citation information for the article (journal title, year, title, etc.), type the information about your article in the Article Locator citation page on the library website. If the library subscribes to the full text, you will be directed to tthe article. If not, you can request a copy of the article via interlibrary loan.

- If Trexler Library does not have access to the full text of the article, search Google Scholar by article title to see if the author has made a copy freely available online. Look to the far right of the article's title to see if there is a link to a freely available copy.
