The database will tell you everything you need to know about an article (the full citation, and additional information).
Often, the entire article is included in the database. Use PDF links or HTML links.
Sometimes you have to follow links from the database to the online article, often via our library catalogue. Use "Download PDF" links!
Sometimes, the article is only available in print, and you have to use the Library Catalogue to find out where the journal that holds the article is in the library. In this case, the "Download PDF" link will be replaced with information including the library, collection, and call number for the journal. Use the "Locate" button in the long record to determine which floor, and where on that floor, to visit to find the journal.
Sometimes, you'll need to request the article via Interlibrary Loan. Do this in the 'Get This' screen, or via the ILL request form.
