Accessing Journal Articles
Adapted from USask Library website.

If you find an article that you want, but it is listed as not available in full-text, it may still be available in full-text from a different database.

When you are searching in a database, click on the yellow Yellow Find it! Button  button to see if your article is available from another source.

A new window will open indicating if SHIRP has access to your article.

Article is available:

"Full text available via" - SHIRP has electronic access to your article - click on Go to view the full-text. (There may be several options listed here. They all lead to the same article, just from different databases. You can click on any of them to see your article.)

Article is not available:

 "Request document via Local Document Delivery System" - SHIRP does not have immediate access to your article. Click on Go to be directed to the Request An Article form. You can complete a request at this stage to have the article sent to you (for free) from a different library.
