Get Article link

When the Get Article button appears in a database, that means the full text of the article isn't available in that particular database. When you click the Get Article button, the system searches for the full text of the article in our other databases. If it is available in another database, you'll see links to the database(s) where the article is available. Click the link to access the article.

If the article isn't available in another database, you'll see a link that says, "Request from Interlibrary Loan".  This link directs you to ILLiad, our interlibrary loan management system.  Once logged in (first-time users will be prompted to register), the request form will appear, pre-filled with the article details.  Submit the form, and we'll do our best to get a copy of the article from another library.  When the article is received, you will be notified by email.
