Can't Access an Article?

Information iconIf you cannot access the full-text of an article, don't panic!

 First, double check that you don't have access to that article in a different library database by searching for the publication the article appears in Journal Search

  • Search the name of the publication (ex. PC Magazine, New York Times, Social Work Journal) 
  • If the publication appears in your search results, click on the link. 
  • If access is available, you will see "Full Text Access" and have a list of databases where the Full-Text of the Journal can be found.  
  • Choose a database from that list and then search for the article by "Search within this publication link" or go to the issue that contains the article using the right-hand side under "All Issues".   

Still not available? You can request the article through our Library Loan Form, and we will request it from another library. Requests usually take 3-5 days, depending on the article. Contact the Library ( with any questions. 

If you are experiencing problems with our guides and databases, please contact ProfessorJanet S. Ward,, Assistant Director of the Library and Web Services Librarian.
