Know Copyright & Avoid Plagiarism

Know What to Look For!

Look for one of these icons in the article record: 
pdf icon
html icon
If you don't see one of those, click this:
 article linker

to find links to the article in another database or to see if the library has the article in print.

If the library does not have a copy, you can order it for free through our Interlibrary Loan service. (Just ask a librarian!) 

If you have a citation that did not come from a library database, try using Google Scholar, which may provide you with a link to a library subscription offering.
