Q

What can I do if the full text of an article I need is not available through the COM Library databases?

I need an article that is listed in Ebsco. Information about the article (title, publisher, abstract) is available through the database, but the full-text is not.

Answer

Occassionally you can find the full text of an academic article through generalized internet search engines.  Google Scholar is typically the best place to check.

If the text is not available through our databases or the internet, COM Library can help you acquire the article through interlibrary loan.  Follow the link below to our Interlibrary Article Request form and fill in the needed information.
