If you cannot immediately access the full text of an article, follow these steps:

Check the LibrarySearch to see if there full text. 
LibrarySearch is our discovery service where you can enter one set of terms and search most of the electronic collection at once. 

How to check for full text in LibrarySearch:

  1. Go to the Library homepage
  2. Enter in the article title in the search box in the LibrarySearch tab, and click search.
  3. Click on the PDF full text or Find it @ RFUMS links to access the full text. If you see Request this item through Interlibrary Loan, it means we do not have immediate full text for the item. However, if you click on the Request this item... link the library can request a copy of the article from another library at no cost to you.
