Full-Text Not Available?


If you want an article that is not available full-text through a library database, you can see if it's available through the Library Catalog. You can find more information about using the catalog in the module called Using the Catalog.

If it isn't at Alumni Library, we may be able to get it for you through Interlibrary Loan. More information about this service can be found here, or by calling 617-989-4040 x3.

Another way to locate an article is to use Alumni Library's full-text linker, SFX. This service, which is available in most of the databases owned by Alumni Library, will search for the full-text article in other places if it isn't available in the database you are looking in. If you still can't find the article you need, SFX can link the citation information to an Interlibrary Loan form for you.

Look for the link called "SFX" or "Check SFX for full text " when searching through databases.
