Where's the full text?

You can find full text from any citation or you can  use the Citation Look Up Tool.  You can also search for a journal title.If the journal title is not found, you may order a copy of the article via Illiad interlibrary loan.

Why do some journals show coverage to "1 year ago"?  It is a fairly common practice for scholarly journal publishers to place an "embargo" -- a restriction on access to the full-text of their journal for a specific time period -- on subscriptions to that journal that come through academic database publishers. Generally, such an embargo means that while the databases that index the journal will provide abstracts and citation information, the full-text of the article will not be available to Library users during the embargo period, which usually ranges from 6 months to 18 months, with 1 year being the most common duration. Note that even if a journal is embargoed, current articles may be obtained via Interlibrary loan.
Where do I find the journals?  If you find a journal article that is not available electronically, our print journals are located throughout the Library, depending on subject. You can locate the call number through the library catalog. If we do not own the journal article in print or in electronic format, you can obtain the article via Interlibrary loan.
