Answer

Refer to our guide Getting the Full Text of Articles or read below:

Once you have found an article in a database look for a link to the full text. Some of the most common links are 

Hint: A PDF file (with the Adobe symbol) recreates the pages as appeared in the original publication, including images. If there is no full text link - look for the "Find it at WMU" button. If it is not in the search results, click on the title of the article and look for it there. The "Find it at WMU" page tells you if we have the article online, or in print, or if you will have to request it through interlibrary loan: Links to full text online appear under the heading Find Full-Text Online. If available, the location and call number will appear under Find Print Copy in the Library. If we don’t have full text online or in print (a location and call number will be displayed) then select the option to get it elsewhere through Interlibrary Loan.
