... a within a database:
If you find an article you want while you are searching in a database, look for a PDF link or an HTML link associated with the article information. Click the link and you should go to the full text of the article.
If you don't see either of these links, look for a Find Full-Text link . This will search for full text of the article online somewhere else where McConnell Library has access. You should be taken to a page with the full text of the article, or to a page with a PDF or HTML link to the article.
If we don't have online access, you will be taken to a page where you can request the article be ordered for us and delivered via PDF within days by clicking "Request through Interlibrary Loan".
If you have any problems or questions finding full text, please ask for help through "Ask a Librarian" chat.
... a printed or paper copy:
If you find an article you want in a printed bibliography, search the article title on Google Scholar. (Be sure to access Google Scholar through this link or our A-Z Database page so that you will be recognized as a Radford University user.) If you find the article on Google Scholar, click the "Find Full Text" link. This will either take you to the full text of the article or the link where you can request it from Interlibrary Loan.
