What if my article is not available in full text?

Articles will either be available in PDF Full Text or HTML Full Text. You can easily see which format is available by looking for the icons under each article. If article full text is not available, look for the Find Full Text link. If you find an article citation in one database (i.e. Academic Search Premier) but cannot access the full text, Find Full Text links you to other databases that do carry that article in full text. If no databases carry the full text of the article, Find Full Text takes you to Saint Mary’s Interlibrary Loan page.
