Yes we have full text articles - LOADS of them

Did you know that we have full text from over 50,000 journal titles?

 Yes we do.   And they are all available through our databases.   When you are searching for articles, you should see one of several options:  

1) If you see a PDF icon, there is the article directly.  Click on that icon and there you go.  You can email it, print it, or download the pdf.   We have so many of these, you may never come across the other options.   But keep reading just in case.

2) You might see a link that says "Click to see if this is Full Text in another database".  In that case, click the link and you will jump to another database.  

3)  You might see a link that says "Click to get to full text of article" which might lead you out to a publishers web site where we might have direct access.  

If you don't see any of that, then you will probably need to fill out an InterLibrary Loan form.  The forms are located on our web page.    We can obtain any article that you need for free!

And if none of that is working for you, please ask for help

There is magic in the Library?

Well, we think so.   The is where learning and content can come together.  Explore a little.  Browse some.   We have so much content to offer.   You might be surprised by what you find. And you might learn a little something.
