If you can’t access an article in a database (i.e. t have a link to PDF Full Text or HTML Full Text), click the Find It button. Boise State might have access to it through a different database. The Find It button searches other databases for the article.

If another database has the article, you'll see a button labeled "Full Text Online." Click it to find the HTML or PDF version of the article.

If, for some reason, this does not work, try any other links that are titled "Full Text Online."

You may instead see a button labeled "Entire Journal" when we have holding in a print format (bound volumes or microform). In that case, click the button and you will be taken to a Library catalog record showing the years that the Library has, the format, and the location in the Library.

In the screenshot of a journal catalog record below shows a Library catalog record. Check the "holdings information" areas to see what years the Library owns.

Finally, if you do not see the "Full Text Online" button, it means that we don't own the article. There’s something else you can try, borrowing the article from a different library. Click the Interlibrary Loan link to see if Boise State can request the article from another library.
