Q

I have found an article I want in a database, but only the citation information is available. How can I get the full text of the article?

Answer

If the full text of an article is not available through a COM database, we may be able to acquire the article from another library.  Follow the link below to our Interlibrary Article Request Form and fill out the required information.  We will attempt to obtain the article from another library.  If for some reason we cannot, we will let you know.

If you really need the article right now, you could try searching for it in Google Scholar.  Most of the time you will only be able to find the citation information for articles through it, but occassionally the full text of articles is also available.
