The easiest way to access the full text of an article is when the PDF is held within the database you're searching. However, this is not always the case. Sometimes the PDF is held in another database or on a publisher's website.
When the PDF of an article is not directly available in the database, Click "Linked Full Text (EBSCOhost) OR "Check Primo for Availability" (ProQuest) to find full-text coverage of articles.
If the full text is still not available, use the methods demonstrated in the box below to request materials from other libraries.
If an article in your result list is not available full text in any of IUP Libraries' databases, click the "Request through interlibrary loan" or ILLiad Interlibrary loan" links to receive the article from another library. You can also place requests directly through our ILL website.
