Here are some tips on getting the full-text version of articles:
1. Look in the database that you are searching in. When you have found a citation you want, look for links marked Full-Text, PDF, PDF Full-Text, or HTML Full-text. Some citations will have them; some will not. If it does, click on that link to get the full-text version of your citation.
2a. OUHSC users:
- Go to the library’s E-journals page.
- In the search box that’s labeled “Find e-journals by title or ISSN”, type the title of the journal you’re trying to find.
- A list of possible journals appears. Look for your journal’s name in that list.
- If your journal is there, and electronic full text is available, you’ll see a link and the available date range for that journal.
- If your journal name does not appear in that list, or no link appears under its name, then use our interlibrary loan service.
2b. OU-Norman users:
- Go to the Bizzell Library home page.
- Log on using your OU4x4.
- In the search box in the center of the page, choose the E-Journals tab.
- Type your journal’s name in the search box, and press enter.
- If your journal title doesn’t appear in that list that follows, use our interlibrary loan service.
3. Look in the OU-Tulsa Library, on our shelves. We have many journals in print. You can check the OU-Tulsa Library Catalog to see if we own a journal title.
4. If all else fails, use ILLiad, our interlibrary loan service. It is free for OU-Tulsa students, faculty, and staff, and we deliver articles to you electronically. We can generally deliver most articles within a week, and sometimes even sooner than that.
