Q: How can I find a full-text article?

A. There are several ways to find full-text articles.
  1. You can use the full-text limit in the database.
  2. You can go to the Periodical Holdings - paper issues to check and see if we have print subscriptions. Make sure to use a title search
  3. Go to full-text eJournals and search for a specific journal title to see if we have full text.
  4. Email Interlibrary Loan department (make sure to send complete citation from your ONU email account!) ILL gives you several options:
    Option 1: If you think you need an Interlibrary Loan for an item, be sure you have checked other resources provided by Benner Library Online for that item.

    • Check for other sources on the Find Books & Articles site.
    • Most databases have an "Interlibrary Loan" graphic or a "Request" graphic option.
    • Type your patron information, click submit, and your request will go directly to our ILL department.
    • Turnaround time is most efficient if you use these database request forms.

    Option 2: If you have a partial citation, email the information to an ILL Staff Member.

    Option 3: If you have a complete citation, order using the ILL Wizard.

    Option 4: If the above options do not work, contact Interlibrary Loan.
