How Do I Find the Full Text?

When you've found an article you want in OneSearch, click on the "IU Link" to see your options for accessing the full text. 


If the full text is available online, you should be redirected to the entire text of the article. 


Sometimes, however, you'll receive a notice that this article is not available. If you see this message, write down the journal title in which the article was published (not the article title), as well as the volume and issue numbers and the date of publication. 


Go to the libraries homepage and type in the journal title in the main search box. Be sure to select the "Journals" option in the dropdown menu. 


If the journal appears in the results list, click on the title to see the library's holdings. 


On the record page, check the holdings to make sure that the specific journal volume and issue number you need is available. This particular journal is available in print at the Auxiliary Library Facility (the libraries' storage facility), so you would need to request to have the journal delivered from the ALF to the Wells Library. 


All that you need to do is fill out a request form (you may be asked to log in with your IU credentials first). Select the particular volume you need, and since this journal is at the ALF, we'll select the "Request ALF Item" button. Then you're all set!
