Research Tip: Locating the Full Text of Articles

Found the perfect article, but can’t find the full-text anywhere?  Sometimes a search in a database like Academic Search Premier shows you an article that looks like it would be perfect for your research only the complete article isn’t found in the database.  If this happens to you the first thing to do is click on the Article linker button found at the bottom of the listing.

This will tell you if the article can be found in either another database or in one of the journals found in Hewes Library.

If the clicking the “Article Linker” button returns the words “no holdings found for this title”, don’t despair, you can still request the article by logging on to your ILLiad account and filling out an Article Request Form.  The circulation staff will find a library that has the journal and request them to send a copy to Monmouth.  Please be sure to fill in as much information as possible on the request and you will be notified by the library when the article has arrived.  This process can take up to a week, so do your research early!
